Freeing Up Masters' Chambers (Yes, We Are Back)!

After an all too long hiatus spent, among other things, studying for and writing patent agent exams, we are back and will strive for weekly posts!

Quietly announced on April 30, 2013, was a much-awaited change to the Masters' Chambers that should, hopefully, reduce wait times and increase the likelihood of actually being heard. 

Long overdue, effective May 27, 2013, ordinary (non-urgent) foreclosure matters will only be heard in Masters’ chambers on Mondays and Thursdays, and there will be an additional Master on those days assigned to the foreclosure list.  This should effectively add 60-90 minutes of daily capacity to Masters' Chambers, which were previously spent on uncontested foreclosure applications.
