CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Legal Newsline) - A committee has recommended that the West Virginia Supreme Court create a business court.

The Business Court Committee forwarded its letter of recommendation to Chief Justice Margaret Workman on Tuesday. Other than accepting the letter, the Court has not acted on the letter. The Justices were in Morgantown on Tuesday hearing cases at the West Virginia University College of Law.

"The committee members worked extremely hard and did volumes of research to arrive at their conclusions," Supreme Court Administrative Director Steve Canterbury said Tuesday. "The Court placed extraordinary confidence in each of the judges on this panel, and I'm sure the Justices will be influenced by the recommendation."

The Court established the committee in June in response to House Bill 4352.
