The Voice of
Business, Industry & the Professions Since 1942 North Carolina's
largest business group proudly serves as the state chamber of commerce
supported the establishment of a North Carolina business court and
continues to support adequate funding for that court to accomplish the
purposes for which it was established.
General Assembly has established a business court having statewide
jurisdiction over complex business litigation. The development of a
stable, consistent body of case law regarding business litigation
issues is important to the continued development of a strong economy
here in North Carolina. To the extent that inadequate funding causes a
backlog of cases in the business court resulting from inadequate
staffing, the business court is not allowed to serve its purpose.
Having taken the steps to create the business court, the General
Assembly should adequately fund the court to enable the court to do
the job for which it was created.
