District of Delaware Announces Selection of New Magistrate Judge

On February 28, 2019, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware announced the selection of Jennifer L. Hall to fill a newly created fourth Magistrate Judge position on the Court.  When Ms. Hall joins the bench, the District of Delaware will have four magistrate judges to serve alongside the Court’s four district court judges.
Ms. Hall brings to the Court a strong intellectual property and science background, having previously served as a law clerk for the Honorable Sharon Prost, Chief Judge of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and as an associate in the Delaware office of Fish & Richardson where she litigated patent cases.  Ms. Hall holds a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Minnesota, and a Ph.D. in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale.

She has spent the past eight years in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, where she currently serves as the Chief of the Civil Division.  Following the completion of her background investigation, the Court expects Ms. Hall to join the bench later this year.
