Tennessee's New Business Court is Now Open for Business -
The new Davidson County Business Court began taking cases on May 1. The business court will have procedures, technology, and dockets specifically designed for and adapted to business cases; it will serve as a model for future business courts in the state.
Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Sharon Lee explained the purpose of the new business court:
“Our court system must do a better job serving the needs of businesses that provide jobs to Tennesseans. With the creation of a business court, we will have more predictable, consistent results, and more timely resolutions of business disputes.”
Learn more about the new business court in this on-demand webinar led by Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle, who will be presiding over the court. Chancellor Lyle will give an overview of what cases are eligible to be heard, how parties can “opt in” to have their cases heard, and the procedures unique to the business court.
