The Business Court Docket Pilot Project was originally established by Supreme Court order in 2015 and was extended in April and December 2017, with slight modifications. Since its founding, 145 cases have requested transfer to the specialized docket with litigants ranging from large, national companies to small businesses that meet the criteria set forth by Supreme Court Order.
The specialized court docket has developed a body of corporate and commercial jurisprudence covering business topics ranging from contract interpretation to corporate e-discovery to business organization to trade secrets and more. Detailed decisions can be found here.
See the Supreme Court’s December 2017 Order for details on procedure for requesting designation to the Business Court Docket.
Chancellor Anne Martin serves as the Business Court Docket judge. See the latest Court Order.
