Mass Tort Allocation Master  Jay Daugherty has served as an allocation master on mass tort cases.  This process occurs after a settlement has been reached and ceased or the judge selects the Allocation Master to develop creteria and case evaluation parameters to decide how to apportion large settlements among hundreds or thousands of potential claimants. Appointment as a Master   The court appoints qualified individuals to be a special master, discovery master or condemnation commissioner usually after receiving a recommendation from counsel that the appointment would aid the parties and the court in processing the case to a timely resolution.  The parties should generally agree with the court on the specific master that the court appoints.  This ensures the master and the parties will have a good working relationship.  To inquire about Jay's availability to serve as a special master, discovery master or condemnation commissioner, please contact us at Jay Daugherty Mediation And Arbitration 4717 Grand Avenue, Suite 830 Kansas City, MO 64112 (816) 931-6300   Office/Ronda (816) 531-2795 Fax (816) 531-2751 Direct (816) 210-3613   Jay Cell jay@jaydaughertymediation.com
