North Carolina Business Litigation Report

Abraham v. Jauregui, November 25, 2009 (Diaz)(unpublished)

The Court overruled an opposition to designation in a case involving "real estate developments which failed during the current financial crisis."

The Court found these types of cases "especially suited" for consideration by the Business Court because "(1) they involve numerous parties, (2) they involve complex issues, (3) they involve current issues relating to real estate development that will result in written opinions of use to the bar and business community, (4) they may involve resolution of multi-state legal issues, (5) they will require coordination with bankruptcy courts and other federal courts, (6) they require management by one judge, (7) they will benefit from consistent legal rulings on the same kinds of issues, (8) they will be motion intensive, and (9) they will benefit from the use of the Court's electronic filing system."
