Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

John P. Doyle, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Martin Duane Luplow.

Attorneys 2:

John Isaac Harris, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellee, Barry W. Bethel.

Judge(s): DINKINS

This is an appeal of a jury verdict in favor of Plaintiff in an action for misrepresentation and breach of contract. The jury returned a general verdict finding Defendant liable and awarding Plaintiff $62,083.18 in compensatory damages. Defendant appeals, asserting that the elements of misrepresentation are not supported by the evidence and that the jury was improperly instructed on the issue of damages. We hold there is substantial and material evidence in support of a finding that Defendant breached the contract between the parties and affirm the jury’s verdict in all respects.
