Delaware bankruptcy court appoints new judge


By Rose Krebs (April 7, 2021, 3:54 p.m. EDT) – A seasoned bankruptcy attorney was sworn in as the new judge in Delaware’s bankruptcy court on Tuesday, giving the nation’s busiest commercial bankruptcy chamber a seventh member to help him manage his hectic workload.

Judge J. Kate Stickles, a 12-year member of Cole Schotz PC’s bankruptcy and corporate restructuring department, was sworn in in a private ceremony, the court said. A public investiture will take place at a later date.

In the announcement, Chief Justice Christopher S. Sontchi said Justice Stickles raises the Delaware Bankruptcy Court bench to seven members as it occupies a seat left vacant by retirement.
