New Case Management Master Appointed to Toronto
The Honourable Caroline Mulroney, Attorney General for Ontario, has announced the appointment of a new case management master to the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto, effective February 27, 2019.
Case Management Master Todd Robinson was called to the bar in 2008. Prior to his appointment he was a partner at Cassels Brock and Blackwell practising in the Construction Law and Advocacy Practice Groups. Master Robinson most recently served as the vice-chair for the Construction and Infrastructure Law Section of the Ontario Bar Association participating in professional development seminars and conferences.
Since being called to the bar, Master Robinson has practiced exclusively in commercial litigation, where he focused primarily on construction-related dispute resolution. He is also a member of the ACCEPTional Foundation which creates employment and training opportunities for people with developmental disabilities.
Case management masters are provincially appointed judicial officers who have the authority to hear and determine certain matters in civil cases, including motions, pre-trials and case conferences. Masters and case management masters may also adjudicate construction lien trials, as well as mortgage and general references, provide dispute resolution services, and serve as registrars in bankruptcy under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.
