Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Bill W. Petty and Micha Buffington, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, The Daniel Co. (DANCO), Inc.

Attorneys 2:

Thomas D. Dossett, Kingsport, Tennessee, for the appellee, Preston McNees Specialty Woodworking, Inc. d/b/a Preston Woodworking.

Judge(s): FRIERSON

This case involves the proper interpretation of a contract between a general contractor and a subcontractor. The trial court determined that the subcontractor was entitled to recover additional sums above the original contract price based on the doctrine of equitable estoppel. The general contractor timely appealed. Having determined that the scope of the parties’ contract covered the work in question and that the doctrine of equitable estoppel does not apply in this matter, we vacate the trial court’s judgment.
