Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kevin W. Shepherd, Maryville, Tennessee, for the appellants, Tara Harrison, individually and as Personal Representative of the Estate of Jerome King, and Geoff King.

Attorneys 2:

R. Stephen Merritt and Cynthia C. Blair, Maryville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jean Meadows, individually and as a General Partner of and on behalf of Double J Company.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

In this case, Partner and Decedent created Double J Company for the purpose of buying and selling real estate. One month following the creation of Double J Company, Decedent personally purchased the Property, which he thereafter deeded to Double J Company. Following Decedent’s death, Partner filed a complaint against Heirs and the estate for partition. Heirs objected, arguing that Partner and Decedent never formed a valid partnership and that the Property was subject to the administration of Decedent’s estate. Following a hearing, the trial court deemed the Property partnership property and ordered the sale of the Property. Heirs appeal. We affirm the decision of the trial court.
