Marriage Tribunal in Archdiocese of Washington

Given the scandal at the Diocese of Wilmington, regarding the Marriage Tribunal, I decided to take a look to see who working on the Tribunal in the Archdiocese of Washington.  

Lo and behold, guess what I found -- NOTHING.  

The names of those who run the tribunal are no longer listed.

A few years ago, the names were listed and I know that Fr. Mark Tucker (stationed at Holy Redeemer, Kensington) is still working there.

Why are the names no longer listed? 

Is it because they are worried about undo influence by those who go before it?  

Are they worried about getting caught up in some sort of scandal?  

Have you noticed that you find fewer contact names on their website and more "service accounts"?  (A service account is simply an email address you write to.  One or two employees are usually assigned to monitor the account.)
