A found farewell to Vice Chancellor Lamb and then some scuttlebutt
on a potential replacement in the Delaware
Those who confirmed they applied for the post are: Delaware Superior Court Judge Mary Miller Johnston; J. Travis Laster, a partner with Abrams & Laster in Wilmington; Joel Friedlander, a partner with Bouchard Margules & Friedlander in Wilmington; and Bruce Silverstein, a partner with Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor in Wilmington. Richard Forsten, who is a partner with Saul Ewing in Wilmington, declined to comment on speculation that he applied. Robert Saunders, a partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in Wilmington, whose name had been suggested earlier this month, said he did not apply.
The paper says to expect things to move on a nomination by mid-August.
