RIDGELAKE APARTMENTS v. HARPETH VALLEY UTILITIES DISTRICT OF DAVIDSON
AND WILLIAMSON COUNTIES
Adam O'Lyddy Knight, Nashville, Tennessee, attorney for appellant,
Robert Edmond Parker, Sara Kathleen Wilson Smith, Nashville,
Tennessee, attorneys for appellee, Harper Valley Utilities District of
Davidson and Williamson Counties.
Harpeth Valley Utilities District of Davidson and Williamson Counties
is a supplier of water and sewer services with charges for such
services being based on gallonage of water measured by a water meter
installed where the water main supply line joins the water line owned
by the customer. Ridgelake Apartments is an apartment complex served
by both a main residential water meter and an irrigation meter. Water
supplied through the irrigation meter is not subject to sewer charges,
but water supplied through the main residential meter is subject to
such charges. Over a period of years, leaks developed in the water
lines owned by Ridgelake on the Ridgelake side of the main residential
water meter. Ridgelake sought reimbursement of sewer charges for
water lost in these leaks on the basis that such water did not enter
the sanitary sewer system. The trial court granted summary judgment
to the Utility District, and we affirm the action of the trial court.

degree murder and conspiracy to commit the first degree murder of her
husband. As a result, she was sentenced to concurrent terms of life
without parole and fifteen years. After the denial of a motion for new
trial, the appellant appealed. The following issues are presented for
our review on appeal: (1) whether the trial court erred by denying the
appellant's request for a continuance; (2) whether the trial court
erred by failing to excuse a juror for misconduct; (3) whether the
trial court erred by failing to instruct the jury on the missing
witness rule; and (4) whether the trial court erred in denying the
appellant's motion to suppress his statement. For the following
reasons, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
