The United States District Court for the District of Delaware today announced a new procedure for the assignment of cases to visiting judges in light of the District’s two District Judge vacancies. The Court’s announcement includes the following key points:
1. The Clerk of Court will immediately start reassigning a portion of Senior Judge Robinson’s cases to a visiting judge, with the majority of the remainder of her cases to be reassigned once she retires in July.
2. All new civil cases will continue to be assigned to Chief Judge Stark, Judge Andrews, Senior Judge Sleet, and the Vacant Judgeship docket.
