PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona’s largest trial court is about to embark on a three-year experiment aimed at making litigation easier for business and the state more business friendly in general.

An order signed by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Scott Bales authorizes the Maricopa County Superior Court to conduct a pilot program under which several judges will specialize in presiding over cases involving commercial lawsuits.

The Arizona Capital Times (https://goo.gl/fcnhHd ) reports that Judges Dawn Bergin, Roger Brodman and Christopher Whitten will serve on the commercial court, which starts July 1.

Bales said creation of the commercial court is in line with the Supreme Court’s initiative to provide better access to the courts. He said businesses shouldn’t be shut out of court because of time and expense required to resolve a dispute.
