    Answered . Unless you took exceptions to the ruling of the general magistrate within ten days within the parameters of the rule, no hearing is required and the judge will sign the order confirming as a matter of course. When the matter was assigned to the magistrate, you would have received an order assigning that would have had some reference to the rules regarding magistrates. There are a number of them.
