Alabama's New Commercial Litigation Court

Jefferson County Presiding Judge J. Scott Vowell asked Drew to serve on the committee that created Alabama's first court to handle complex commercial litigation. The other members of the committee were retired Supreme Court Justice Ralph Cook, Alabama Gas Company President Dudley Reynolds and Circuit Court Judge Robert S. Vance, who will be the primary judge handling cases on the Commercial Litigation Docket ("CLD"). The CLD has a specific jurisdiction set forth in the applicable rules. Drew can help you determine whether your matter is suitable for assignment or transfer to the CLD.
