A friend and current Delaware attorney just sent me this article from Delaware Online: Bouchard seen as Chancery candidate.
Interestingly, Andre Bouchard had been the chairman of the Delaware Judicial Nominating Commission since 2011, and he recently resigned from that position. Bouchard is currently the managing partner of Bouchard Margules & Friedlander, P.A. in Wilmington, Delaware.
From what I hear from my friends who practice in Delaware, Bouchard is well-respected and would make an excellent Chancellor.
According to the article, and as I suspected here, current Vice Chancellor Travis Laster is also in the conversation regarding the next Chancellor. Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden is being mentioned as a possibility as well. Previously, Judge Jurden had been considered a serious contender for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware position that ultimately went to Chancellor Strine.
