Judge(s): FARMER

The trial court awarded partial summary judgment to both parties in this dispute over the division of attorney’s fees. We affirm the trial court’s holding that Tennessee law, and not the “modern rule” is applicable to this case as a matter of law. We reverse the trial court’s awards of summary judgment to both parties on the remaining issues, and remand for further proceedings.
