ABA Section of Business Law Appoints Two New Business Court Representatives: Judges Elizabeth Hazlitt Emerson (NY) and John E. Jordan (FLA)

The ABA Section of Business Law has appointed two new Business Court Representatives, with two-year terms beginning in Spring 2022.  Judge Elizabeth Hazlitt Emerson has been a New York Commercial Division Judge in Suffolk County since 2002. Judge John E. Jordan is the Business Court Judge in Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit.

Among other things:

The Business Court Representative Program is designed to provide educational opportunities for judges on cutting edge business law developments. The program is also designed to provide the Section members with exposure to judicial leaders as well as an opportunity to provide their input on those same developments and gain their insights and perspectives on business and commercial litigation. ….

Business Court Representatives are individuals who are current members of the judiciary who preside over courts or dockets consisting primarily of complex business and commercial litigation. Business Court Representatives need not have been active in the Section previously. One of the purposes of the Business Court Representative Program is to make the Business Court Representatives, and through them other members of the judiciary, aware of the activities of the Section.
