Commercial Docket


The four Judges on the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Commercial Docket hear cases involving business-to-business disputes, including liquidations, trade-secret disputes, non-compete contracts and shareholder disagreements. The docket was designed to resolve such cases more quickly while establishing consistence and expertise among the docket’s judges.

The Commercial Docket Program is available to Ohio counties with either six or more general division judges, or populations exceeding 300,000. Establishing a Commercial Docket is up to each individual court.
