DOVER, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell has nominated a public defender who represents juveniles to be a judge at Family Court.
Markell nominated Natalie J. Haskins on Wednesday, according to a news release from the governor's office. She would fill the vacancy left when Judge Alan Cooper died last month.
Haskins, who lives in Wilmington is a graduate of the University of Delaware and received her law degree from American University. She began her career at a Wilmington law firm and also was deputy attorney general.
Haskins' nomination must be confirmed by the state Senate.
