The Master-in-Equity Court provides a relatively quick and inexperience means of litigation resolution for civil, non-jury matters. However, parties may not initiate action in the Master’s Court. The Court of Common Pleas through an Order of Reference is the only way a case comes before the Master-in-Equity. The Master’s Court hears most foreclosure cases, and a sizable number of other civil, non-jury cases such as land partitions, judicial sales, and actions to collect judgments. Any case, which could otherwise be heard in the Court of Common Pleas without a jury, can be referred to the Master, and anyone filing a civil case and waives the right to a jury trial can ask to have their case referred to Master-in-Equity Court.
