WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Citizens for Judicial Fairness announced the launch of a Labor Day print advertisement exposing Delaware’s “Jabba the Hutt-like” elites including Chancery Court Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick, former Chancellor and Supreme Court Justice Leo Strine, and longtime Chancery Court insider Kevin Shannon for enriching themselves while leaving working Delawareans behind. The advertisement calls out cushy conflicts of interest such as McCormick’s former representation of HIG before taking the bench and doling out judgements in the unsavory company’s favor.
Citizens for Judicial Fairness released the following statement about the campaign: “Our campaign to expose Chancery insiders is just beginning. We can’t continue to allow insiders to control the system solely for their own benefit and enrichment. When powerful judges like Chancellor McCormick can ignore conflicts of interest and rule in favor of their former clients, like McCormick has done with HIG, then we know the system is rigged, just like Jabba the Hutt’s infamous court in Star Wars. We will continue to call out this unconscionable self-dealing and enrichment whenever and wherever we can so that the people of Delaware know what their so-called leaders are doing.”
