Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Tracy Jackson Smith, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kimberly Matthews.

Attorneys 2:

Brian T. Mansfield, Sevierville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Club Chalet Homeowners’ Association, Inc.

Judge(s): SUSANO

The defendant appeals from a judgment entered on a jury verdict holding her liable to her employer for her involvement in a co-worker’s misappropriation of funds. The jury found that the defendant’s involvement included (1) intentional misrepresentations, (2) concealment of facts relevant to the misappropriation, and (3) breach of contractual duties owed to the employer. The sole issue before us is whether the trial court erred in denying the defendant’s motion for a directed verdict made at the conclusion of the proof. The motion was based upon the defendant’s assertion that the statute of limitations barred the claim. We affirm.
