Delaware chief justice, arbiter of U.S. corporate law, to retire

WILMINGTON, Del., July 8 (Reuters) - Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court Leo Strine will retire this fall, Governor John Carney announced on Monday, a leadership change in the court system that decides disputes for more than two-thirds of Fortune 500 companies.

The governor will nominate a replacement, who faces confirmation by the state Senate. A list of potential nominees will be drawn up by a selection committee and given to the governor, a process that usually takes months.
