DOVER, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell is nominating a corporate law attorney for a spot on Delaware’s Court of Chancery.

Markell on Wednesday said he has tapped Tamika Montgomery-Reeves to succeed retiring Vice Chancellor Donald Parsons Jr.

If confirmed by the Senate, Montgomery-Reeves would be the first black and only the second woman to serve as a chancery court judge.

Markell also is nominating Jennifer Ranji and Danielle Blount for Family Court appointments to succeed Judge William Chapman Jr. and Commissioner Mary Ann Herlihy, both of whom are retiring.

Ranji is head of the state children’s department and a former education policy adviser to Markell. She also served as deputy legal counsel to Gov. Tom Carper and legal affairs director for Family Court.

Blount currently is Markell’s deputy legal counsel.
