DAVID MICHAEL RUST V. SOUTHERN ENVIRONMENTAL CONTRACTORS, INC., ET AL.

An employee/minority shareholder appeals the summary dismissal of his action in which he sought to recover commissions the corporation allegedly owed him for prior work and damages arising out of an alleged breach of fiduciary duty and fraud by the president/majority shareholder. The trial court granted the Motions for Summary Judgment filed by the corporation and by the president/majority shareholder, finding the employee failed to show that there was a genuine issue for trial as to whether employee was owed commissions and whether the president/majority shareholder committed fraud or breached his fiduciary duty. We affirm.

David Young Parker, and David Zager, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant.

Attorney 2: 

H. Buckley Cole, and Darlene T. Marsh, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellees, Southern Environmental Contractors, Inc. and Byron Taylor, individually.
