Default Special Master Sale? What's this?

While doing a bit of research I found a prior cash sale from an individual to a well known lender (whose intials begin with WF) for a single parcel transfer. The county auditor 'conditions of sale' notes it as being a 'Special Master Sale'. Have I been looking at the computer to long? Has my head cold finally won?

What the blazes does 'Special Master Sale' mean? This is Hamilton County in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio. Tom Fiehler, where are you when you're needed!

I'm here-for what its worth! I've never heard of it. When I have questions, I send their office an email or just call them. They are likely closed for today but I have found them to be very helpful. If you need some grunt work (no comment from the Joker) I would be happy to help-tomorrow. Just let me know what you need.

Jill,

I've done some foreclosure appraisals for the US District Court. The attorney who is appointed is called the Special Master, so I would assume that is what you are looking at.

A judge has appointed a "special master" to oversee the disposition of an asset, a company or other complex legal remedy. The special master acts in a fiduciary capacity and is answerable to the judge.

Isn't there some kind of PC law that says you're not allowed to have slaves and masters anymore? I'm sure I should know the answer to this being that I'm in one of the most conservative PC climates in the country.

I believe the "Special Master" is like a trustee and acts in a neutral capacity.

Old terms dont, or shouldnt have to be changed because "young" people are offended by them. Everyone has adequately explained what a "Special Master" is ... no matter how the PC feel about the term. It is what it is.

"special" = handicapped
"master" = slave owner

or: "handicapped slave owner", there you have it.

Special masters are a unique brand of dispute-resolver relatively unknown to many mediators, facilitators, and public officials. A special master is appointed by a judge to oversee one or more aspects of litigation. They may be appointed pre-trial, during trial, or post-trial. Despite their relative anonymity, such masters have been credited with some of the most creative and innovative conflict resolution within the history of the U.S. legal system.
