Its purpose is to establish the best practices for the resolution of business cases; to improve the efficiency of the courts and to utilize technology in managing business court cases; and to enhance the accuracy, consistency, and predictability of decisions in business and commercial cases. The Michigan Supreme Court assigned Judges Wendy Potts and James Alexander to the Oakland County Business Court.
