DOVER — The Court of Common Pleas sat in special session Wednesday at the Kent County Courthouse for the investiture of Gregory R. Babowal.
Court of Common Pleas Chief Judge Carl C. Danberg presided over the special session, and Justice of the Peace Court Magistrate Michael P. Sherlock administered the oath of office.
The swearing in of Commissioner Babowal, who will sit in Kent County, marks a historic change for the Court of Common Pleas, expanding the number of commissioners from two to three.
This means the court will now have a commissioner in each of Delaware’s three counties.
Commissioner Babowal graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and went on to earn his law degree from Widener University School of Law in Wilmington in 1998.
Commissioner Babowal was admitted to practice law in Delaware in 1998. He is also admitted to practice in the Delaware District Court, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
