DOVER, Del. (AP) - The Delaware state Senate has confirmed Gov. Jack Markell’s appointment of James Vaughn Jr. to the state Supreme Court.

The Senate unanimously confirmed Vaughn’s nomination Wednesday in a brief special session.

Vaughn was picked to replace Justice Carolyn Berger, who retired Sept. 1 after being passed over by Markell for the chief justice position. Vaughn, whose late father was a longtime state senator, has been a Superior Court judge for 15 years, serving as president judge since 2004.

Senators also unanimously confirmed Bradley Manning, an attorney in the public defender’s office, to become a Superior Court commissioner and James Collins as head of the Department of Technology and Information. Collins is a former director of the Division of Professional Regulation and most recently served as Markell’s deputy chief of staff.
