NC Business Court enters new era as its founding judge retires (access required)

No hostile takeovers were involved, but the North Carolina Business Court has already experienced quite a shakeup in the year's first quarter. In just three months, two-thirds of the leadership on the court has changed, bringing "fresh blood" to the 15-year-old institution, said founding Judge Ben Tennille, who retired March 1.

Jolly Jr. (pictured) was appointed chief special superior court judge of the Business Court after Tennille announced his departure.
