Announcement of Retirement of Hon. Kevin Gross

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware announces the retirement of Hon. Kevin Gross, effective at the end of his term on March 12, 2020.  We sincerely thank Judge Gross for his exemplary service to the Court for what will be 14 years as a member of the Court, including three years as Chief Judge.  Judge Gross is a remarkably kind person and a terrific judge.  His judicial and personal temperament is beyond compare.  He makes pragmatic decisions, writes wonderful opinions and is a warm and helpful colleague.  His extraordinary skills as a mediator are well known and he has selflessly provided invaluable service to his colleagues, the bar and the litigants in that capacity.  We are saddened he is leaving us.  We are also pleased that Judge Gross will be moving on to what we expect will be an enjoyable retirement.  We will be formally honoring Judge Gross’ service to the judiciary in the future.  In the meantime, we thank him and wish him the very best.

                - Christopher S. Sontchi, Chief Judge
