Do they wear the stripes that are often found on other referees? Probably not, but in the courts, a Court Referee is one of the most key players in helping the legal system keep the flow or work going and cases moving through in a timely fashion. Shon Cook from Tabono Law explains.
By definition - " A referee is an attorney who holds hearings, examines witnesses, and makes recommendations to a judge. The chief judge of a circuit court may appoint an attorney to serve as a referee to hear testimony and arguments on any domestic relations issue, except modifications of spousal support. Working in this way creates an efficient way to get past some of the incredible amount of things that would take up hours or time in a courtroom and could potentially cost all involved thousands more. This is also a great way to handle things with professionals who can help guide decisions before the gavel drops.
Referees work a little differently in the counties they operate in, Shon operates in several West Michigan County Courts and talks about this vital role in the judicial system
