Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Christopher Dunn Heagerty, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellants, Farmers Aid Association of Loudon County, Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

A. Wayne Henry, for the appellee, Lloyd L. Meyers.

Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

This is an interlocutory appeal from the denial of Appellant insurer’s motion for summary judgment in an action on a homeowner’s policy that contained a contractual one-year statute of limitations. The Appellee insured filed suit eighteen months after the loss occurred. In the trial court, the Appellant insurer moved for summary judgment, arguing that the one-year statute of limitations in the Appellee insured’s policy was a bar to his action. The trial court agreed with the Appellee’s interpretation of the policy provisions and denied the motion for summary judgment. This court granted the Appellant’s application for interlocutory appeal. Following our review, we reverse the trial court’s decision and remand the case for entry of summary judgment in favor of Appellant.
