WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Donald Parsons, one of five judges on Delaware’s Court of Chancery, has said he plans to step down when his term expires in October.

Judiciary officials said Monday that Parsons informed Gov. Jack Markell of his decision in a letter dated a week ago.

Officials said Parsons, who was appointed to a 12-year term in 2003 by former Gov. Ruth Ann Minner, has not announced his post-retirement plans.

But Markell said in a statement thanking Parsons for his service that he is pleased that Parsons has indicated that he will continue serving the public after leaving the court and that his contributions to the state will continue.

The Chancery Court is known for handling high-profile litigation involving some of the world’s largest companies, many of which are incorporated in Delaware.
