Court to Hear 6 New Cases

The Tennessee Supreme Court has granted review to six new cases. Among the civil questions it will consider are those seeking clarification about the pre-suit notice in health care liability cases, jury instruction regarding foreseeability limited to the day of the event, and construction of the Tennessee Human Rights Act. New criminal cases granted review include the standard for ineffective assistance claims, inconsistent/mutually exclusive verdicts regarding merger of offenses, and waiver of lesser-included offense instructions. The new issue of the Raybin-Perky Hotlist reviews the cases and offers predictions as to how each may be decided.
