Prior to his appointment to the Superior Court, Judge Davis was a Judge on the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware from April 14, 2010, until his appointment to the Superior Court. He was appointed to the Court of Common Pleas by Governor Markell.

“I have really enjoyed my service on the Court of Common Pleas,” said Davis at the time of his appointment. “As a judge on the Court, I have been afforded the opportunity to help Delawareans with important matters every day. Recently, we worked to speed up the civil trials handled by the Court so that we can resolve these disputes more quickly and efficiently. I look forward to contributing in the same way on Superior Court if I am confirmed.”

On the Court of Common Pleas, he worked to create the Special Election Expedited Docket, also known as “SPEED,” so that litigants would be guaranteed specific judge assignment and resolution within 5 months of a defendant’s response to the claims. In February, he was appointed by Chief Judge Smalls to oversee the civil proceedings in New Castle County.

Before that, he was a partner in the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. Judge Davis joined Skadden in 1996. At Skadden, Davis’s practice involved corporate governance issues and disputes arising from bankruptcy and corporate reorganizations. From 1992 to 1996, he practiced law with the Baltimore law firm of Miles & Stockbridge, P.C.

Judge Davis received his B.A. from the University of Virginia in 1985. He received his J.D. with honors from Emory University School of Law in 1992.
