MBA Civil Litigation Section Council Chair Jeffrey N. Catalano and MBA President David W. White, Jr. collaborated with Chief Justice Barbara J. Rouse and others in the Superior Court to present the first Firm and Fair Trial Date Town Hall at Suffolk University Law School on March 20, 2008.
Jeff Catalano served on the seven-member panel which also included three members of the judiciary: Hon. Barbara J. Rouse, Chief Justice Superior Court; Hon. John C. Cratsley, Associate Justice, Superior Court; and Hon. Stephen E. Neel, Associate Justice, Superior Court. The forum offered an opportunity for the judiciary to share information and get feedback from trial attorneys on the initiative to reduce the need for continuance requests and to set reliable and firm trial dates.
