The Specialized Role of the Business Litigation Session

Suffolk Superior Court in Boston is home to an innovative session called the Business Litigation Session, commonly abbreviated as "BLS".  Brought about by the advocacy of administrative judges, civil litigators, and leaders in the business community, the BLS has served as a statewide forum for the resolution of complex commercial disputes since 2000.  

Business Litigation Session Limits Partial Dispositive Motions

Prosecuting or defending a motion to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment can be a substantial undertaking.  In a complex case a motion for summary judgment can consume a hundred hours or more of attorney time and tens of thousands of client dollars.  At the same time, reviewing all of the submitted material and producing a reasoned opinion consume significant amounts of court resources, resources which are already stretched thin due to budgetary constraints.  Too often attorneys and litigants file motions to dismiss or for summary judgment as a matter of course, even when those filings will, at best, remove only a portion of the claims from a case, while achieving little or no reduction in further litigation cost or trial time.
