FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana is set Wednesday to launch a three-year pilot program allowing most business-related court cases to be fast-tracked through the legal system.
Allen Superior Court Judge Craig Bobay is one of the six judges who have agreed to preside over the Indiana Commercial Court Pilot Program. He tells The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette that the program will let businesses more efficiently and predictably resolve disputes.
A group of lawyers met regularly to craft the rules for Indiana, reviewing other states' guidelines for their commercial courts, and heavily relying on Michigan's throughout the process.
Indiana will be the 23rd state to adopt commercial courts.
