Coordinating Masters

The term ‘coordinating master’ includes special masters whose work requires them to coordinate activities in a variety of ways. For example, they may meet and confer with lawyers to develop proposed orders to submit to the judge; they may chair a liaison committee of lawyers; or they may work on other aspects of complex cases or the claims administration of class action settlements. They may also coordinate events in cases that are filed in both state and federal courts to provide uniform and efficient procedures.
