SBA members and Past Presidents Paige A. Martin and William G. Klain have been appointed to the Commercial Court Review Committee by Arizona Chief Justice Scott Bales. Paige and Bill previously served on the Superior Court's Commercial Court Practices and Procedures Committee, chaired by the Hon. Randall Warner.
Administrative Order 2018-17 established the Committee and its mandate. The Committee shall review the data and issues included in progress reports provided by the Superior Court in Maricopa County and the Administrative Office of the Court (AOC) to the Arizona Judicial Council, and solicit input from Superior Court judicial leadership and any others it deems relevant to its review. The Committee will make recommendations on whether the experimental rules of procedure should be made permanent and, if so, any recommendations it believes would improve the rules or commercial court program in Maricopa County or statewide. The Committee shall submit its recommendations to the Supreme Court and the Arizona Judicial Council by June 1, 2018. If Scottsdale Bar members would like to provide input regarding the Committee's mandate, please contact Paige or Bill.
