The Georgia State-wide Business Court (“Business Court” or “Court”) provides specialized expertise for the adjudication of complex business and commercial cases. It is the only trial court in Georgia with state-wide jurisdiction and, thus, Process Servers appointed by the Court pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 9-11-4(c)(4) may be called upon to serve papers and process throughout the state in cases falling within the Court’s jurisdiction.
Private Process Servers are appointed by the Business Court on an annual basis. All appointment orders expire at the end of each calendar year (i.e., December 31), and applicants must re-apply to be reappointed for the following year. Applications for the 2023 calendar year will be accepted beginning October 1, 2022.
Those listed on the 2022 Process Server Order of Appointment are appointed and authorized to serve as a Permanent Process Server in the Georgia State-wide Business Court for the calendar year 2022 without the necessity of an order for appointment in each individual case. This Order only authorizes the foregoing individuals to serve process and papers in any matter pending before the Georgia State-wide Business Court.
