Sundahl Quoted in Crain’s on Making Commercial Courts Permanent in Cuyahoga County

C|M|LAW Professor and Associate Dean Mark Sundahl was quoted in this week’s issue of Crain’s Cleveland Business News in an article regarding the recent decision to make permanent the commercial docket at the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas.  A three-year pilot program in which the operation of a commercial docket was tested returned favorable results, which led to the decision by the County Court judges to make the docket permanent.  The commercial docket creates, in effect, “commercial courts” that are presided over by judges appointed to handle the cases on the docket.  By hearing a greater volume of commercial cases, the judges have the opportunity to gain familiarity with business issues and expertise in commercial law.  In the article, Sundahl states that “[t]he quick resolution of disputes and the ability of a business to have confidence in the consistent and fair application of the law allows for businesses to operate in an environment of certainty and predictability.  All of this lowers the cost of doing business and increases the profit margin.”
