Chief Deputy Attorney General Carl Danberg will be appointed as interim Delaware Attorney General when M. Jane Brady leaves to become a Superior Court judge in early December, Gov. Ruth Ann Minner said on Monday, Nov. 21, 2005.
Danberg, 41, of Newark, has served as Chief Deputy Attorney General since August 2004. Prior to that, he was Deputy Principal Assistant to the Commissioner at the Delaware Department of Correction. He was a Deputy Attorney General from 1994 to 1996 and worked in private practice before that.
He is an adjunct professor at the University of Delaware and a Captain, Judge Advocate General's Corp., in the Delaware Army National Guard. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware and a law degree from the Widener University School of Law.
He is a member of the Delaware State Bar, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He and his wife, Barbara, have two daughters.
"Having worked closely with Attorney General Brady, I anticipate a smooth transition," said Danberg.
Danberg will assume the Attorney General position after M. Jane Brady is sworn in as a judge on Dec. 7.
