Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Fonda Blair, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Josh A. McCreary, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the Appellees, Rutherford County Board of Education, Rutherford County Tennessee, Ken Nolan and Martha Millsaps.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Teacher who brought action against Rutherford County, the Rutherford County Board of Education, and two employees of the Board appeals the grant of defendants’ motion for summary judgment and dismissal of her claim that defendants violated the Education Truth in Reporting and Employee Protection Act of 1989, as well as her claims for invasion of privacy, abuse of process, misrepresentation, and harassment. We affirm the trial court’s holding that there is no general cause of action under the Education Truth in Reporting and Employee Act of 1989. Finding that there are genuine issues of material fact with respect to Plaintiff’s claim for retaliation which preclude summary judgment, we reverse and remand for further proceedings. We affirm the trial court’s dismissal of the remaining claims.
