Business Litigation Pilot Project-Phase 2

HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DAVIDSON COUNTY BUSINESS COURT DOCKET PILOT PROJECT CONTINUES

The Tennessee Supreme Court is continuing its highly successful business court docket pilot project as it seeks to provide all Tennessee businesses and citizens across the state with a specialized business court docket, it announced in a Supreme Court Order. The Order follows recommendations submitted to the Court by the statewide Business Court Docket Advisory Commission, which analyzed more than two years of survey data and results.

The business court pilot docket project was originally established by Supreme Court order in 2015 and was extended in April 2017, with slight modifications. Since its founding, 129 cases have requested transfer to the specialized docket with litigants ranging from large, national companies to small businesses. 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.
