    The Business Court Ad Hoc Committee has one new member added to the Executive Committee.

    The Committee has been working with the Representative Brian Palmer of the Michigan House of Representatives, who intends to introduce a bill establishing a business court this spring. The bill is in the drafting stage.

    There will be a meeting in Lansing on March 16, 2005, among representatives of the Business Court Committee, Rep. Palmer and others associated with the House to plan strategy for introducing and passing the proposed statute. This will likely include meetings and opportunities for press coverage.

    The Committee anticipates promoting the proposed statute through the Section, the Bar, and members of the judiciary.

May 22, 2004

    The Commercial Litigation Committee held a breakfast meeting on April 30, 2004. The Committee discussed a variety of activities that the Committee may want to sponsor. The Committee is presently exploring the possibility of sponsoring two programs in the 2004-2005 year.

    The first program would take place during the fall of 2004 and would focus on how technology is changing the relationship between in-house counsel and outside litigation counsel, including electronic communication and methods of permitting in-house counsel to have access to outside counsel's computer network and document management systems. This would be a panel discussion among 4 or 5 in-house counsel and someone knowledgeable in present and future uses of technology. Committee members are presently exploring this subject in more detail.

    The second program would take place in the spring of 2005 and would focus on arbitration and how well arbitration truly works. Many Committee members think that arbitration is overrated and does not really deliver the advantages contracting parties believe will result from arbitration rather than court litigation.

    Business Court Ad Hoc Committee Summary

    The Business Court Committee has continued to explore the possibility of having a business court in Kent County. The Committee is presently working with the administrator of the Kent County Circuit Court to try to determine how many business cases that court has. The Committee has also had additional preliminary discussions with a few judges on that bench.

March 4, 2004

    1. Next Scheduled Meeting of the Committee

    The Commercial Litigation Committee is planning a dinner meeting for the last week in March 2004.

    2. Council Approval

    None.

    3. Membership

    Over the last several months, four new people have joined the committee. Communications have primarily been through e-mails.

    4. Accomplishments Toward Committee Objectives

    The committee has changed some of its plans since the last Council meeting. In particular, as more people have joined the committee, there have been more divergent views on how the committee can best achieve its goals and what those goals ought to be. Therefore, instead of proceeding with the two programs proposed in the last committee report, the committee is going to review its goals with those members who are actively involved in the committee at this time.

    5. Meetings and Programs

    The committee will consider what kinds of programs to offer at its next meeting later this month.

    6. Publications

    None.

    7. Legislative/Judicial/Administrative Developments

    None.

    8. Miscellaneous

    There have also been some developments in the Business Court initiative. Specifically, the Business Court Committee has learned that funding for the cyber court has been eliminated, which means that the committee cannot proceed in Oakland County by linking with the now cancelled cyber court pilot project. However, the committee has recently been in touch with the new chief judge of the Kent County Circuit Court and is pursuing the possibility of a business court there. Further, the committee intends to approach the Supreme Court again, now that it appears that the cyber court is no longer a possibility. The committee also intends to continue evaluating ways to initiate some form of business court docket in Oakland County, although Oakland County representatives have not been enthusiastic about the possibility if it cannot be done in conjunction with a cyber court.

December 6, 2003

    5. Membership

    The Committee has three new members, who attended the Committee meeting on November 20, 2003. Committee members have principally communicated through e-mails.

    6. Accomplishments Toward Committee Objectives

    The Committee has determined to continue focusing on commercial litigation and the relationship between outside litigation counsel and a corporate client, including a client with an in-house counsel staff.

    The Business Court Ad Hoc Committee has also continued its activities and will pursue establishing a business court, particularly with Oakland County. The Business Court Committee has also continued to work with lawyers and judges in other states. Business Court Committee Chairman Diane L. Akers also served on a panel that discussed business court jurisdiction at a recent national symposium held in Baltimore, called Taking Care of Business: Business and Technology Courts in the 21st Century.

    7. Meetings and Programs

    The Committee is planning two programs. One will take place in February or March 2004 and will focus on in-house counsel and their relationship with outside litigation counsel. The program will also focus on trends for commercial litigation in the future.

    The other program will take place in the fall of 2004 and will focus on litigation prevention. The Committee intends to plan this program in conjunction with in-house counsel.

    8. Publications

    The written materials from the symposium contain a written description of business court activities around the country. Diane L. Akers submitted a portion on Michigan's Business Court Ad Hoc Committee as well as the Cyber Court. The materials will be published in the Business Lawyer, the ABA Business Law Section's publication.

    9. Legislative/Judicial/Administrative Developments

    The Committee is awaiting a decision on Cyber Court funding, which should be made soon. In part, the strategy for the Business Court Ad Hoc Committee's ongoing efforts depends on whether Oakland County will be a pilot Cyber Court.

    10. Miscellaneous

September 11, 2003

    1. Next Scheduled Meeting of the Committee

    The Commercial Litigation Committee is planning a meeting to take place in early October to plan for 2003-2004.

    None.

    3. Membership

    Two new members have joined the committee. At its October meeting, the committee will discuss membership.

    4. Accomplishments Toward Committee Objectives

    The committee's activities have principally focused on the business court initiative. The pilot proposal is being presented to the Oakland County Circuit Court Committee on September 8, 2003. The committee is also scheduling a meeting with Kent County. The committee has also been in contact with representatives of the Supreme Court to keep them informed of the progress on establishing a pilot business court or docket.

    5. Meetings and Programs

    See no. 1, 4, above.

    6. Publications

    None.

    7. Legislative/Judicial/Administrative Developments

    The Business Court Committee continues to follow developments in the cyber court statute. At present, the cyber court statute, as amended, has been passed. However, it apparently has no current prospects for funding.

    8. Miscellaneous

May 17, 2003

    1. Next Scheduled Meeting of the Committee

    There is presently no meeting scheduled.

    2. Council Approval

    The Commercial Litigation Committee is requesting that the Council approve funding for a pilot business court in Oakland and/or Kent Counties. The Business Court Ad Hoc Committee has conducted a good deal of research and has engaged in a number of other activities aimed toward establishing some form of a business court in Michigan. Those activities are briefly summarized in the Proposal for Exploration of Pilot Business Court in Oakland/Kent County (Proposal), attached to this report.

    The Business Court Committee believes that the next important step in this process is to involve people who are inside the courts. Therefore, the Committee has prepared the attached Proposal to present to the circuits who have shown the most interest, Oakland and Kent.

    In the Committee's contacts with circuit courts as well as the Michigan Supreme Court and Court Administrator's Office, many people have asked how much business litigation each county actually has and how many cases may be suited to resolution in a business court. Presently, while both the Oakland and Kent County Circuit Courts have made some initial inquiry to try to answer such questions, they have not made much progress because there is presently no easy way to gather the necessary information.

    Therefore, the Committee is requesting that the Council consider approving a grant of $5,000 to $10,000 to be used by the Pilot Business Court Administrators to pay for an administrator to review of the business cases presently pending in that court as well as operational issues that may arise should the circuit court proceed to establish a Pilot Business Court.

    3. Membership

    Since the last report, the principal activities have been drafting and revising the Proposal, particularly by members of the Business Court Executive Committee.

    4. Accomplishments Toward Committee Objectives

    Since its last report, the Committee has prepared the Proposal.

    5. Meetings and Programs

    If funding is approved, the Committee is planning to meet with representatives of the circuit courts and Michigan Supreme Court to introduce the Proposal and gain their input.

    6. Publications

    The Committee has not sent publications since the last report.

March 6, 2003

    During the last quarter, the activities of the Commercial Litigation Committee have focused on the business court initiative.

    On February 21, 2003, the Business Court Executive Committee held a teleconference to plan activities for 2003. The Committee concluded that, to continue making progress toward the establishment of a business court, division or docket, someone within the court system, ideally a judge who would be interested in becoming a business court judge, must become actively involved in the initiative. Both the Oakland and the Kent County Circuit Courts have expressed interest in pursuing a possible business court. Therefore, starting with those courts seems most appropriate.

    The Executive Committee determined that we should prepare a proposal that could be presented to the Court Administrators and/or Chief Judges in Oakland and Kent Counties. The proposal would include a short description of features that could be included in a pilot business court plan in each county as well as proposed actions toward that end. The Executive Committee may present to the Business Law Section Council a request for a grant that could provide funding for a court's exploration of a possible business court.

December 7, 2002

    1. Next Scheduled Meeting of the Committee

    Next scheduled meeting of the Committee: No date has been set at this time.

    2. Council Approval

    None.

    3. Membership

    The Commercial Litigation Committee has maintained contact with members principally through e-mails. As noted in paragraph 5, below, there has been good participation by committee members, particularly in connection with the Business Court Ad Hoc Committee. The Business Court Committee is also in the process of exploring whether to involve other sections of the bar in its activities. As noted in paragraph 5, the committee has been approached by the Real Estate Section about bringing others into the business court group.

    4. Accomplishments Toward Committee Objectives

    The committee has not yet established a business court in Michigan and so intends to continue its efforts. The committee has succeeded in getting a significant number of members of the Section to become actively involved in Section activities and intends to continue those efforts.

    5. Meetings and Programs

    The principal activities of the Commercial Litigation Committee have focused on the Business Court Ad Hoc Committee. The Business Court Committee has engaged in the following activities since it was formed in December 2001: (1) The committee held a general meeting on April 22, 2002, which featured presentations by Rep. Marc Shulman, sponsor of the Cyber Court statute, and Robert L. Haig, nationally recognized leader in the business court activities throughout the country. Approximately 45 members of the Business Law Section attended. (2) The committee presented a program on business courts featuring 4 general counsel from large companies in Michigan, which was attended by approximately 35 people. (3) The Business Court Committee formed an outreach group, which has met three times to plan activities to publicize and build support for a business court. (4) One or more representatives of the Business Court Committee have met with judges in three circuit courts (Oakland, Wayne and Kent), who have expressed some interest in pursuing the possibility of a business docket or division in those circuits. (5) The Business Court Committee has prepared written documents describing business courts in general and the committee's activities, which have been disseminated to a number of businesses, bar sections and committees, industry and trade organizations, chambers of commerce and others. The documents are presently available on Bodman, Longley & Dahling LLP's web site and will be available on the Section's site. (6) The committee has just begun an effort to generate a list of leading businesses and business organizations that support the concept of establishing a business court in Michigan. (7) The committee is presently considering how to involve other sections of the bar. We have been approached by the Real Estate Section and may establish liaisons with that and other sections. (8) The entire group of over 170 people who responded to the initial e-mail solicitation have received periodic e-mail updates on activities of the group. (9) Plans are in place for several articles about the business court to be published in 2003.

    The committee is planning several meetings or presentations to various groups of in-house counsel, who are extremely important in building support for the business court concept. The committee also expects to continue meeting with business and trade organizations.

    6. Publications

    The Commercial Litigation Committee provided 3 articles in 2002 for the Business Law Section Journal.

    7. Legislative/Judicial/Administrative Developments

    The Business Court Committee is exploring whether pending legislation the proposed statute providing for concurrent jurisdiction in district, circuit and probate courts and a newly introduced version of the Cyber Court statute could provide a vehicle for the establishment of a business court.

    8. Miscellaneous

    Business Law Section Commercial Litigation Committee Propose Budget for 2003. The Commercial Litigation Committee (and the Business Court Ad Hoc Committee) propose a budget of $10,000 for 2003. No dates for meetings have been set. However, the committee anticipates that it may hold two meetings or programs in connection with the Business Court Committee's 2003 activities.

    I. Business Lawyers and the Media

    The Commercial Litigation Committee is presenting a program on Business Lawyers and the Media on Thursday, March 7, 2002. The speaker is Helio Fred Garcia, a nationally recognized expert in corporate crisis communications and press relations.

    II. Business Court Ad Hoc Committee

    On January 2, 2002, members of the Business Law Section were invited to participate in a newly formed ad hoc committee that will make recommendations regarding the establishment of a business court in Michigan. Over 160 people responded expressing interest in serving on or working with the ad hoc committee. Due to the large number of responses, a 7 member Executive Committee was formed. Members are T. J. Ackert, Diane Akers, Daniel Cherrin, Susan Diehl, Karl Fink, Cyril Moscow and William Volz. The Executive Committee has met twice and has gathered a good deal of information about various business courts. There will be a meeting of the entire Business Court Ad Hoc Committee on April 18, 2002 and participants will be provided with written materials in advance to facilitate the discussion. We anticipate that, at the conclusion of the meeting, the group will be able to focus our efforts and determine how to proceed with the project.

    III. Business Law Journal

    Three members of the Commercial Litigation Committee, Joe Ahern, Steve Landau and Janet Ziulkowski, are writing articles for the spring 2002 issue.

September 12, 2001

    The commercial litigation committee presented its second program for the 200-2001 year entitled, "Attorney Client Privilege and the Corporate Client," on March 20, 2001 at the Hotel Baronette in Novi. The panel included two judges—the Hon. Michael Talbot of the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Hon. Marianne O. Battani of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan; two in-house counsel—Marcia L. Proctor of Butzel Long and Douglas B. Schoettinger of Dow Corning Corporation; two outside litigators—Stephen F. Wasinger of Wasinger Kickham & Kohls and John W.

Kemsley of Bodman, Longley & Dahling LLP.

    Almost 100 people registered for the program, which involved a round table type discussion where prepared hypotheticals were discussed and developed, and the group's photo made the front page of the April 18, 2001 edition of the Detroit Legal News.

    Diane L. Akers

March 1, 2001

    The Commercial Litigation Committee and the In-House Counsel Committee are jointly sponsoring a program on "Attorney-Client Privilege and the Corporate Client," scheduled for March 20, 2001. The format will be a "round table" type discussion during which the panel will develop the issues by commenting on hypothetical situations that are both prepared in advance and expanded upon during the discussion. The panelists include judges, in-house counsel, outside litigation counsel and a law school professor. Invitations were sent out during the week of February 5, 2001. On February 15, 2001, members of both committees and the panelists participated in a prep session during which ideas and possible hypotheticals were reviewed.

December 2, 2000

    I. Joint Meeting with In-House Counsel Committee. On September 20, 2000, the Commercial Litigation Committee and In-House Counsel Committee had a joint meeting to discuss ways the committees could work together. The group decided to work together to present a program on attorney-client privilege and the corporate client.

    II. Program on Budgeting for Litigation. The Commercial Litigation Committee sponsored a panel discussion on budgeting for litigation on November 9, 2000 at the Dearborn Inn. The panelists were Douglas E. Brown, GM Legal Staff; Diane M. Soubly, Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel—Litigation, Comerica Incorporated; Angelique J. Strong, Corporate Counsel and Assistant Secretary, Frank's Nursery and Crafts; and James C. Zyskowski, Business and Finance, Dow Corning Corporation. Approximately 40 people attended the program, 2/3 of whom were commercial litigators and 1/3 of whom were in-house counsel. Following the program, the committee hosted a cocktail reception.

    III. Program on Attorney-Client Privilege and the Corporate Client. The Commercial Litigation Committee, in conjunction with the In-House Counsel Committee, will present a program on issues related to the attorney-client privilege where the client is a corporation. Rather than individual presentations by individual speakers, the program will be more of a discussion among the participants based on hypothetical situations created to bring out the difficult and controversial issues that arise in this area. Participants will include outside commercial litigators, in-house counsel, judges and law school professors in the areas of ethics and evidence. The committee intends to offer this program during March 2001.

March 4, 2000

    I. How In-House Counsel View Outside Litigation Counsel. On February 10, 2000, the Commercial Litigation Committee sponsored its first program of 2000, a panel discussion featuring four prominent general counsel of large companies: Patrick C. Carey—Secretary and General Counsel, Hayes Lemmerz International, Inc.; George W. Madison—Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Comerica Incorporated; Richard L. Manetta—Deputy General Counsel, Ford Motor Company; and Christopher C. Nern—Vice President and General Counsel, Detroit Edison Company. The program was held at the Hyatt Regency Dearborn. Approximately 95 people registered to attend, with 85 or so actually attending. The Detroit Legal News sent a photographer, and a photo appeared on page 1 of the February 25, 2000 issue under the heading, "Business Law Section conducts seminar".

    II. Commercial Litigation Committee Meetings. The Commercial Litigation Committee held its first meeting of 2000 immediately after the In-House Counsel program on February 10, 2000. The Committee now consists of: 1. Joseph Ahern—Stark, Reagan & Finnerty 2. Diane L. Akers, Co-Chair—Bodman, Longley & Dahling LLP 3. Harvey W. Berman, Co-Chair—Bodman, Longley & Dahling LLP 4. Robert Constan—Staver & Souve, PC 5. Michael Fitzpatrick—Stark, Reagan & Finnerty 6. Jennifer Grieco—Sommers, Schwartz, Silver & Schwartz 7. Robert J. Hahn—Cummings, McClory, Davis & Acho 8. Stephen Landau—Jacob & Weingarten 9. George Laska—Caputo Brosnan PC 10. Gene Pyatenko—Evans & Luptak PLC 11. Dan Sharkey—Butzel Long 12. Linda Watson—Cox Hodgman & Giarmarco, PC.

    The Committee generally discussed the kinds of programs and activities that would be of assistance to the Section and the Bar.

    The Committee plans to meet to discuss the second program for 2000, which the Committee is tentatively planning for May 2000, on Wednesday, March 1, 2000 at the Troy office of Bodman, Longley & Dahling LLP.

    Harvey W. Berman; Diane L. Akers

December 4, 1999

    The Commercial Litigation Committee would like to accomplish three principal goals for 1999-2000: (1) increase membership and participation in committee activities, (2) hold two meetings of the committee to discuss planning and direction, and (3) sponsor two programs on selected topics.

    The first program. The first program will take place in February or March of 2000 and will focus on the relationship between in-house counsel and outside litigation counsel. As set forth in more detail in the attached description, this program will consist of a panel discussion by about 5 or 6 prominent in-house counsel who hire and supervise outside litigation counsel. The discussion will focus on issues such as how in-house counsel decide whom to retain in litigation matters; what in-house counsel expect from outside litigation counsel; what kind of relationship should develop between in-house and outside litigation counsel; what kind of information or assistance outside litigation counsel need and expect from in-house counsel; pitfalls to be avoided; and other topics raised by attendees and panelists. This program will be presented in conjunction with the In-House Counsel Committee.

    The first committee meeting. Immediately following the first program (which will last about 2 hours), those interested in serving on the committee will be invited to remain and discuss planning the next program in more detail, other activities the committee should investigate and how to generate greater participation by members of the section and the bar. The group will also decide whether to have a second committee meeting to refine the plan for the second program or conduct the second committee meeting in conjunction with the second program.

    The second program. The second program will focus on how to market commercial litigation services. This program may include presentations by outside professionals as well as committee or section members. Timing will have to be decided. It could be held in May or September. Diane L. Akers will develop an overview of the second program so that it can be discussed and refined at the first committee meeting in February or March. This may be an afternoon seminar with cocktails afterward.

    The second committee meeting. The second committee meeting will be scheduled based on the level of interest generated by the programs and ads. If there is enough interest, the committee will meet in May or June to discuss plans for the committee for 2000-2001 as well as plans for a theme issue of the Business Law Journal.
