Chancellor Strine profiled by the Globe and Mail
Delaware: Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, Leo E. Strine, Jr., was profiled by Canadian paper The Globe and Mail. He is noted for being "tart", "withering", and known for "eloquent phrasing and stinging verbal slap-downs of corporate bad boys". Those on the receiving end of his sharp tongue have called him overly harsh but he has a broad following in the legal community, and has been referred to as "brilliant" and a "prophet".  Strine says that he is only filling the mandate of the Court of Chancery to ensure corporate directors meet their legal duties toward shareholders: "My duty is to call it as I see it. I write plainly. I don’t believe in being quiet". 
Strine started off his career planning to go into politics, but the same outspokenness that earns him fans on the Court stalled out his political ambitions. As he told the interviewer: "I am fairly plain spoken and our electoral system encourages people to hide their real views".  After realizing the mismatch, Strine received an appointment to the Court of Chancery from Governor Thomas R. Carper at the young age of 34.
