On June 18, 2014, Governor Markell signed into law House Bill No. 243 relating to agricultural leases. The effect of this legislation is to provide that the Justice of the Peace Court has exclusive jurisdiction over eviction actions involving an agricultural lease. This helps to clarify previous uncertainty about the proper court procedure for actions for possession under agricultural leases. The legislation was effective when signed.
