The Delaware Court of Chancery, on the Circle in Georgetown. The courthouse was built in 2003, and houses the Court of Chancery, which handles issues of equity and corporate law. The Court of Chancery is one of Delaware’s three constitutional courts, along with the Supreme Court and the Superior Court. The court is unique to the United States, with other states (the the United Kingdom) abolishing their courts of chancery in the mid- to late-1800s. Photo by xzmattzx.
Just to be clear, other states combined their courts of equity with their civil courts. Those courts rule, when necessary on equitable matters. For example, New Jersey has a Probate Part of their Superior Courts. Those courts can rule in equity as well as civil matters.
