FSF Distinguished Fellow Deborah Tate Develops Tennessee Business Court

Free State Foundation Distinguished Adjunct Senior Fellow Deborah Taylor Tate, Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts in Tennessee, reports the Tennessee Supreme Court has established a pilot business court to be housed in the Nashville Metro-Davidson County courthouse, with the expectation of statewide expansion. The program, which Ms. Tate played a large role in developing, will oversee complex, corporate litigation, and business-to-business disputes using pretrial procedures specially adapted to business cases to streamline litigation and provide greater predictability and consistency of decisions.

Congratulations to Debi for her leadership in getting the pilot program up and running!
