Kerrigan says her work will include moving to more in-person trials while still maintaining flexibility. In addition, she hopes to increase electronic filing now that DAWSON—the case management system launched by the court in late 2020—makes that possible.

On this week’s Talking Tax, Kerrigan also spoke about access to Tax Court records, avenues to advance or resolve cases pre-trial, and work by the court to promote diversity and equity.
