The Business Courts Task Force was formed in 2018 to evaluate the need for a statewide business court system.  If the Task Force determines that there is such a need, it then plans to design and provide a draft structure for such courts.  It would also then focus on identifying and securing appropriate resources, support and funding to implement such a system.  Co-Chairs Judge Gill Freeman (Ret.) and Jon Polenberg welcome your input.  Stay tuned for developments.
