Court Clarifies When Plaintiffs May Add Back to a Suit

The Tennessee Supreme Court today, in Davey Mann et al v. Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity et al, clarified when plaintiffs may add back to a lawsuit involving comparative fault defendants previously named, but dismissed by a non-final order after the statute of limitations has run. In a unanimous opinion, the court held that a defendant dismissed by a non-final order is “not a party to the suit” for purposes of section 20-1-119 and may be added back to the lawsuit pursuant to section 20-1-119 if a timely-sued defendant files an answer alleging fault against the dismissed defendant. The Supreme Court remanded to the trial court for further proceedings. Learn more from the Administrative Office of the Courts

TN Supreme Court

WILLIAM S. LOCKETT, JR. v. BOARD OF PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY

Court: TN Supreme Court

Attorneys:

Sandy Garrett, Senior Litigation Counsel, for the appellant, Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.

William S. Lockett, Jr., pro se.

Judge: HOLDER

While working for a law firm in which he was a shareholder, an attorney performed legal services for clients and failed to remit fees owed to the law firm. Members of the law firm confronted the attorney about the misappropriated legal fees shortly after the attorney resigned his position at the law firm to assume elected public office. As a result of his conduct, the attorney pleaded guilty to theft and to willful failure to file income tax returns. During a subsequent investigation, the Board of Professional Responsibility discovered that the attorney had accepted loans from the law firm’s clients while he was employed at the law firm. A hearing panel of the Board of Professional Responsibility found that the attorney should be suspended for four years. The attorney appealed, and the chancery court applied additional mitigating factors to reduce the suspension to two years. We hold that the chancery court erred in modifying the judgment without finding that any of the circumstances in Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, section 1.3 applied. We also hold that the hearing panel erred in imputing a conflict of interest to the attorney with respect to the loan from the law firm’s client and in misapplying aggravating and mitigating factors. Despite these errors, we conclude that the length of suspension imposed by the hearing panel is consistent with the sanctions imposed on attorneys for similar conduct. We therefore reverse the chancery court’s reduction of the suspension to two years and affirm the hearing panel’s imposition of a four-year suspension.


DAVEY MANN ET AL. v. ALPHA TAU OMEGA FRATERNITY ET AL.

Court: TN Supreme Court

Attorneys:

Herschel L. Rosenberg, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellants, Davey Mann and Teresa Mann.

Russell C. Rutledge, Germantown, Tennessee, for the Appellees, Daniel Kelly and John Condon, III.

Scott C. Campbell, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellees, Nicholas Beaver and Zachary Beaver.

Darryl D. Gresham and Harry W. Lebair, IV, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellee, E.J. Cox.

Judge: CLARK

We accepted this appeal of a personal injury action to determine whether the dismissal of a defendant pursuant to a written order not made final under Tennessee Rule of Civil Procedure 54.02 renders that defendant “not a party to the suit” for purposes of Tennessee Code Annotated section 20-1-119. We answer this question in the affirmative. Because the Court of Appeals upheld the judgment of the trial court dismissing the appellees from the Manns’ second amended complaint as time-barred, we reverse the Court of Appeals and remand to the trial court for further proceedings.


TN Court of Appeals

PEGGY GIFFIN d/b/a RE/MAX REALTY CENTER, ET AL. v. ANTHONY SAWYER, ET AL.

Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys:

Jonathan Swann Taylor, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellants, Peggy Giffin d/b/a Re/Max Realty Center, and Racia Futrell.

Mark N. Foster, Rockwood, Tennessee, for the appellees, Anthony Sawyer and Hope Sawyer.

Judge: SWINEY

Peggy Giffin d/b/a Re/Max Realty Center and Racia Futrell (collectively 1 “Plaintiffs”) sued Anthony Sawyer and Hope Sawyer2 alleging, among other things, that the Sawyers had breached a real estate sales agency contract. After a bench trial, the Trial Court entered its order finding and holding, inter alia, that the Sawyers did not breach the sales agency contract and that Plaintiffs were not entitled to collect a commission under the sales agency contract. Plaintiffs appeal to this Court. We find that the evidence does not preponderate against the Trial Court’s findings, and we affirm.

Upon a plea of guilty, Defendant, Justin Alexander Deweese, was convicted of child abuse of a child eight years of age or less, in violation of Tennessee Code Annotated section 39-15- 401(a), a Class D felony. He submitted to the trial court to determine the length and manner of service of his sentence. After a hearing, the trial court ordered a three-year sentence of confinement. Defendant has appealed, asserting that he should receive a totally suspended sentence to be served on probation. He does not challenge the length of the sentence. Having fully reviewed the record and the briefs of the parties, we affirm the judgment of the trial court by memorandum opinion.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. (Torry) Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Bret Gunn, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, the State of Tennessee.

Judge: WOODALL

Petitioner, Shundell Lynn Dickerson, was charged with first degree premeditated murder. Following a jury trial, Petitioner was convicted of the lesser-included offense of facilitation to commit first degree murder. Petitioner was sentenced as a Range III persistent offender to 60 years incarceration. This Court affirmed Petitioner’s conviction and sentence on direct appeal. State v. Shundell L. Dickerson, No. M2006-02021-CCA-R3-CD, 2008 WL 2780591 (Tenn. Crim. App. at Nashville, filed July 18, 2008), perm. app. denied (Tenn., Jan. 20, 2009). Petitioner filed a timely pro se petition for post-conviction relief and was appointed counsel to represent him. Petitioner alleged several instances of ineffective assistance of counsel at trial. Following an evidentiary hearing, the trial court entered an order denying relief. Petitioner now appeals. Following a careful review of the record, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Senior Counsel; Amy P. Weirich, District Attorney General; and Stacey McEndree and Kate Edmands, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: PAGE

A Shelby County jury convicted petitioner, Tony Holmes, of one count of first degree premeditated murder and one count of attempted first degree premeditated murder. The jury sentenced him to life in prison for first degree murder, and the trial court sentenced him as a repeat violent offender to life in prison without the possibility of parole for attempted first degree premeditated murder, to be served consecutively. Following an unsuccessful direct appeal to this court, he filed a petition for post-conviction relief alleging that appellate counsel was ineffective for failing to argue that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress an eyewitness’s identification of him. He also contended in his petition that trial counsel was ineffective for improperly making personal attacks against the prosecutor during closing arguments, for failing to impeach witnesses with their prior criminal convictions, and for failing to impeach a witness with her prior inconsistent statement to police. Discerning no error, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.


STATE OF TENNESSEE v. JAMES ERIC HURD

J. Colin Morris, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, James Eric Hurd.

Judge: MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, Mikel Shane Hutto, appeals the Hardeman County Circuit Court’s summary dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus, alleging that he failed to receive statutorily mandated pretrial jail credits for his sentences, thereby rendering the confinement illegal.

Judge: GLENN

The defendant, Christopher S. Robinson, appeals the Dickson County Circuit Court’s revocation of his probation, arguing that the court erred: (1) in finding that his due process and speedy trial rights were not violated by the long delay between the filing of the probation violation warrant and the revocation hearing; (2) in finding that he violated the terms of his probation; and (3) in ordering him to serve six months in confinement. Following our review, we conclude that the twelve-year delay between the filing of the warrant and the revocation hearing, under the facts of this case, violated the defendant’s right to a speedy trial.

Sources: Roberts Changed His Mind on Health Care Act

Chief Justice John Roberts initially sided with the Supreme Court's four conservative justices to strike down the heart of the Affordable Care Act, but later changed his position and formed an alliance with liberals to uphold the bulk of the law, according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations. CBS's Face the Nation looks into the process and possibilities of why Roberts changed course.


Judge: Mosque Cannot Open During Appeal

Chancellor Robert Corlew refused Monday to suspend an order that blocks the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro from getting a certificate of occupancy, The Daily Herald reports. Corlew turned down county attorneys who wanted him to put his injunction on hold and allow the mosque to be used while they appeal the order to a higher court. The fix, Corlew says, would be to have another planning commission meeting to approve the project. Corlew issued the injunction in mid-June after ruling that county officials did not provide sufficient public notice for a May 2010 meeting where the mosque’s construction plans were approved. The county has argued that it treated that meeting like any other and has appealed Corlew’s ruling to the Tennessee Court of Appeals. WPLN has more


Opinion: 40 Years Later, Death Penalty Still Flawed

June 29 marked the 40th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision, Furman vs. Georgia, which struck down the nation’s death penalty. It was reinstated four years later with new sentencing procedures to make the system fairer and less arbitrary. But in 2012, the Rev. Stacy Rector writes in an opinion piece, that the death penalty system is still flawed. "Random factors such as the race of the victim, the quality of defense counsel, and the jurisdiction in which the crime is committed continue to have a significant influence on whether a defendant will receive the death penalty," she writes, saying that 40 percent of the inmates on Tennessee’s death row come from Shelby county, while half of the state’s counties have never sentenced anyone to death.


Resolution Would Honor Convicted Attorney

A proposed resolution being considered by the Sevier County Bar Association would honor Sevierville attorney Jerry Kerley, who now faces prison for his role in a $6 million mortgage fraud scheme. On the same day Kerley was suspended from the practice of law, an associate of his presented Sevier County Bar Association members a resolution to declare Kerley "an upstanding member of the bar." The resolution was deferred at the bar's June meeting to be taken up at its July meeting, according to the association's secretary-treasurer Alex Johnson. The News Sentinel has the story


Supreme Court Adds 2 Years Back to Lockett's Suspension

The Tennessee Supreme Court has reversed a lower court’s decision and reinstated a Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility hearing panel’s ruling suspending a Knoxville attorney for misconduct. While working at the Knoxville law firm of Kennerly, Montgomery & Finley, William S. Lockett Jr. received payments for legal services and failed to remit those payments to the firm as required by his employment agreement. Lockett pleaded guilty to theft and to willful failure to file income tax returns. The Chancery Court of Knox County had reduced the original four-year suspension to two years. In a unanimous opinion, the Tennessee Supreme Court reversed that decision, holding that the chancery court failed to base its discipline modification on any of the criteria set forth in Supreme Court Rule 9, section 1.3. The court conducted its own review of the hearing panel’s decision and agreed that the four-year suspension was consistent with sanctions imposed on other attorneys for similar criminal conduct.

Hawkins County Lawyer, Former Judge, Suspended

The Tennessee Supreme Court temporarily suspended the law license of James F. Taylor pursuant to Section 4.3 of Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9 on June 29. The Board of Professional Responsibility petitioned the court to temporarily suspend his law license for misappropriation of funds for Taylor’s own use and posing a threat of substantial harm to the public.

Clarksville Judge Reprimanded

The Court of the Judiciary, now Board of Judicial Conduct, has issued a public reprimand against Judicial District 19 Circuit Court Judge John Gasaway, in response to a complaint filed against the judge. The reprimand came about after Gasaway published an order in response to a motion to recuse in cases involving attorneys who had recently left the law practice where his wife worked. "A significant dispute" had arisen between his wife and the attorney, the reprimand says, and that conclusions drawn by the judge were not obtained through any hearing. The publication of the order without a hearing was in violation of Canon 2 of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Download the reprimand


Norton Continues Campaign Through 'Health Issue'

Hamilton County General Sessions Court Judge David W. Norton says that despite a health issue that has kept him away from several recent candidate events, he remains committed to his campaign. He was appointed by the Hamilton County Commission following the sudden death of Judge Bob Moon earlier this year. The appointment extends until the Hamilton County General Election this August.
