WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A former master in the Court of Chancery has been sworn in as a Delaware Superior Court judge.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/25b9H0c) reports that Abigail LeGrow was sworn in for her first term at a ceremony in the New Castle County Courthouse on Friday afternoon.

Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Leo E. Strine Jr. administered the oath of office as LeGrow’s husband, Brian, held the Bible. Her two children led the pledge of allegiance.

Her appointment continues the trend of Gov. Jack Markell and the Senate choosing almost exclusively females for the Delaware bench over the last year.

LeGrow received her B.A. in Political Science from Susquehanna University. She graduated summa cum laude from the Penn State Dickinson School of Law in 2004.
