An officer of the court who handles all aspects related to an estate when no other person has been appointed as executor or administrator.
A judicial official who performs administrative and clerical activities necessary for the proper running of a court’s business, such as scheduling trials, maintaining records, entering judgements, and issuing process.
The court administrator acts as a liaison between judges, attorneys, and clients, and generally controls the court’s operations. This position’s behind-the-scenes duties include setting trial dates and processing all official communications. Courts generate enormous amounts of paper, which the administrator’s office processes by receiving case filings, verifying court papers, and issuing writs and summonses.« Back to Glossary Index
