Specialized business courts

Re: your Nov. 25 report: It is worth noting that the Supreme Court of England and the Superior Court of Ontario both have specialized Commercial Court lists, for the expeditious handling of a limited class of cases.

The Commercial List was established in Ontario in 1991 based on the English practice which has existed since at least 1983: see Ninemia v. Trave Schiffartsgesellschaft [1983] 1 WLR 1422. -- Geoffrey Newbury, Barrister and Solicitor, Mississauga, Ontario
