Judge(s): GIBSON

This is a breach of contract case arising from a sub-lease between a salon owner and her tenant. After Lessor terminated the Lease Contract, Lessee filed suit in general sessions court for damages. The general sessions court awarded Lessee $15,000 in damages. Lessor appealed to circuit court, which granted competing motions for summary judgment in favor of both Lessor and Lessee. Lessee appealed. The judgment of the trial court is vacated and remanded, due to Tenn. R. Civ. P. 56.04 deficiencies in the trial court’s order.
