Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael R. Jennings, Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellant, Wilson County, Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

Timothy A. Davis, Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellee, James Lewis Jackson.

Lawrence Alan Poindexter, Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellees, John N. Jewell and Janice B. Jewell.

Judge(s): CLEMENT

Wilson County appeals from the trial court’s denial of its Tennessee Rule of Civil Procedure 60.02 motion to set aside an agreed order of compromise and settlement based upon its contention that the agreement would violate a policy of the Wilson County Road Commission and that it “forgot” the policy when entering into the agreed order. The county also appeals from the trial court’s finding that it was in contempt of the agreed order and must comply with the order within six months, the trial court’s denial of its request to stay the judgment, and the trial court’s award of $750 in attorney’s fees to the plaintiff. Finding the trial court did not abuse its discretion, we affirm the trial court in all respects.
