Georgia voters passed a constitutional amendment in November 2018, endorsing the establishment of a state-wide business court. The Act serves as the enabling legislation for the state-wide business court’s creation and implementation. Among other provisions, the Act provides the court’s location alternatives, jurisdictional limitations, filing fee, amount in controversy requirements, filing and transfer procedures, consent and objection rights for parties with cases and controversies slated for adjudication in state-wide business court, and minimum experience requirements for the presiding judge.
