Holland is the longest serving Justice in Delaware history

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney received formal notice on Thursday that the Honorable Justice Randy J. Holland will retire from the Delaware Supreme Court at the end of March. Governor Carney issued the following statement:

“Justice Holland has been a model jurist and a steady source of wisdom on Delaware’s Supreme Court for more than 30 years. His thoughtfulness and deep knowledge of Delaware history and the Delaware Constitution will be missed. We should all thank Justice Holland for his service to the people of Delaware and to our great judiciary.”

Justice Randy J. Holland became the youngest person to serve on the Delaware Supreme Court when he was nominated by Governor Michael Castle in 1986 and confirmed by the Delaware Senate. He was re-appointed twice to additional 12-year terms, by Governor Thomas R. Carper and most recently in 2011 by Governor Jack Markell. In 2009, he became the longest serving Justice in Delaware history.
