Greetings. On behalf of the United States Court of Federal Claims, welcome to our website.
I am pleased to announce two recent changes in the court’s Office of Special Masters. First, on September 1, 2015, Nora Beth Dorsey was designated Chief Special Master to succeed Denise Vowell on the occasion of her retirement. Second, on October 19, 2015, the court appointed its newest special master, Mindy Michaels Roth.

On November 19, 2015, the court will host the next meeting of its Advisory Council. The United States Court of Federal Claims Advisory Council advises the court on matters pertaining to the administration of justice and the court’s relationship to the bar and to the public. We are grateful to have approximately 75 legal practitioners and academics familiar with the work of our court serving on eight Advisory Council committees. For more information about the Advisory Council and its ongoing work, please click here.
As we approach the upcoming holiday season, I’d like to remind the bar and the public of the court’s October 1, 2015, General Order announcing that the court will be closed on Friday, November 27, 2015, Thursday, December 24, 2015, and Thursday, December 31, 2015. To see this General Order, please click here.
Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season and for many successes in the New Year.
