The Tennessee Supreme Court’s business litigation pilot project granted review to 28 cases in the program’s first six months. The business court, located in Davidson County, also achieved expedited results: six cases were resolved and the time to finalize them ranged from between 30 days to just 164 days. In Georgia, the average time of resolution is 608 days. “Although it’s still early in the process, these preliminary reports underscore that this specialized docket is meeting the litigation needs of the business and legal community and that our case management plan is working,” Chief Justice Sharon G. Lee said. "We appreciate Davidson County Chancery Court being willing to serve as the pilot for this innovation in our ongoing efforts to streamline the judiciary."
