Hon. McCafferty Featured at Judicial Open Forum

USDC-NH Magistrate Judge Landya McCafferty at her swearing-in ceremony. Members of the Bar were granted the opportunity to attend the first informal meeting with Judge McCafferty at a recent USDC-NH Judicial Open Forum, co-hosted by the USDC-NH and the NHBA Federal Practice Section.
Members of the NHBA Federal Practice Section had their first opportunity to meet with new United States District Court Ė New Hampshire Magistrate Judge Landya McCafferty at an informal judicial open forum recently at the Rudman Courthouse in Concord.

As magistrate judge, McCafferty has a varied schedule, which she elaborated upon at the start of the forum. Aside from managing the usual non-dispositive matters of a magistrate judge, she also screens pro se filings, handles non-felony criminal cases, runs the federal mediation program, and takes her own cases on a "by consent" basis.

"Needless to say, there is a lot of take-home work. Reading tends to make up the bookends of my day," said Judge McCafferty. "I have most of the reading material uploaded to my iPad and it makes things much easier."

McCafferty also fielded questions and suggestions from members about how the court operates, cautioning members that she was still getting a feel for the court.

"I donít want to make a lot of changes until Iíve been here long enough to know what needs to be changed," she said.
