A Philadelphia federal court of appeals is to hear the fight over whether the Delaware governor must have a balance of Democratic and Republican judges in the state.

The case involves Governor John Carney against James R. Adams a former Department of Justice lawyer.

Wilmington attorney David Finger charged that arguments for keeping the balance is mere political horse trading.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that Finger said that as a political independent Adams would be kept off the Delaware bench.
