Chief Special Master Dorsey to step down as chief special master effective September 30, 2019

On September 1, 2015, I was designated Chief Special Master by the Court and have had the honor and privilege of holding that title for four years.  After thoughtful consideration, I have informed Chief Judge Sweeney of my desire to step down as chief, and to return to the position of special master effective at the end of this fiscal year, September 30, 2019.  I am extremely grateful for the kindness shown to me and the support for the Office of Special Masters and its mission during my tenure as chief.
