Jacobs to retire

Delaware Justice Jack Jacobs has today announced his retirement effective July.   There are two obvious potential candidates, James Vaughn and Jan Jurden. Both had applied to replace Chief Justice Steele.  The Judicial Nominating Committee sent their names along with Chief Justice Strine's name to the governor, who ultimately selected Strine.   Jurden, however, has come under some scrutiny in the past few days for her sentencing of an heir to the duPont family fortune.  It's the kind of thing that, while not disabling, will require a lot of explaining.  If you're explaining, you're losing. My uninformed guess is that she gets passed over for now.
