Master-In-Equity Richard Booth spoke about holding hearings for contested and uncontested non-jury matters. Masters in Equity hear appeals from Magistrate and Probate Court rulings. He is an adjunct of the Circuit Court and hears cases that may involve a lot of testimony. In reality, most of his cases involve property foreclosures. Judge Booth is only aware of two female “Masters” presently serving.
