Davis said the Supreme Court would appoint more judges if the caseload requires it.
"As we move along with this process, we may need to appoint more circuit court judges, but bring it on. We're ready," she said.
Business court judges appointed will be circuit court judges with special training and interest in complex commercial cases. They may also be retired, senior status judges.
"The Supreme Court is totally behind this," she said. "Everybody, including circuit judges, has bought into this."
The goal of a business court is to remove complex commercial cases into another forum, freeing the circuit court dockets to handle other cases more quickly. Across the county, business courts are a trend in moving a growing number of lawsuits into separate, specialized systems.
The Supreme Court began accepting transfer requests to business court in October.
