Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Janice Riddle, Memphis, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

William B. Walk, Jr., Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Keith S. Carlton.

Judge(s): HIGHERS

Former client filed a pro se complaint for legal malpractice against her former attorney. She had previously filed a complaint against the attorney with the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility, and that matter had been resolved in the attorney’s favor nearly two years before she filed the malpractice complaint. The trial court dismissed the complaint for malpractice, finding it barred by the one-year statute of limitations for such claims. The former client appealed. We affirm.
