Indiana Commercial Court Expanding, Succeeding

I attended a continuing ed webinar last week related to the recent-announced expansion of Indiana's commercial court system.  Effective January 2021, there will be four new counties in the program.  There will now be ten counties (and ten judges) total.  For interest lawyers, there are a handful more CLE's upcoming about the new judges and the system generally.

I first wrote about this new specialized court in June 2016:  Indiana Commercial Court Pilot Project And Interim Rules.  One thing I learned during the CLE was that the court has a website/database with a search function that allows you to research commercial court decisions:  Commercial Court Document SearchClick here for the court's rules, which I've added permanently to the right side of my home page.        

I would recommend utilizing the court for most commercial foreclosure cases or business loan disputes.  In my opinion, the specialized system has been a really good thing for Indiana.  Kudos to our Supreme Court for implementing this change and to the judges who have embraced it.
