Attorney John A. Collins III is Appointed to Serve as Attorney Trial Referee in the New London Judicial District
Attorney John A. Collins III has been appointed to serve as an Attorney Trial Referee by Supreme Court Justice Richard N. Palmer.
The goal of the attorney trial referee program is to accelerate case dispositions by permitting attorney trial referees to conduct proceedings in certain types of civil cases, thereby allowing judges assigned to the Civil Division to adjudicate a greater number of cases overall.
The attorney trial referee program has been a major factor in reducing Connecticut’s crowded dockets. The State’s nonjury trials are now maintained at a manageable level because of the commitment from the attorney trial referees.
Attorney Collins also serves as a fact-finder/arbitrator for the Connecticut judicial system.
