The Tennessee Supreme Court is launching Phase 2 of the Tennessee Business Court Docket Pilot Project, following the success of the initial phase of the program, which began in 2015. Since its inception, nearly 90 business cases have been transferred to the docket. “In addition to assisting businesses by providing a specialized docket to address complex business disputes, it also helps cases involving citizens of our states by speeding up other dockets,” Chief Justice Jeffrey Bivins says of the program. Tennessee is one of 29 states with a specialized court for complex business issues.
