Business Court Expansion:  
The General Assembly passed legislation expanding the Business Court  and making significant changes to the manner in which cases can be removed to the Business Court. During the month of November revisions to the local rules and additional information regarding these changes will be posted on this website.  In the interim, the Chief Justice has designated two new Business Court Judges, John Jolly in Raleigh and Albert Diaz in Charlotte.  Both Judges may now be assigned complex business cases.
