Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kevin C. Angel, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jeffrey Richard Palmer.

Attorneys 2:

P. Alexander Vogel, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Bill Kees.

Judge(s): FRIERSON

The plaintiff tenant in this action rented an apartment from the defendant landlord. Attached to the apartment were a wooden deck and staircase leading to the ground below. The tenant filed suit against the landlord for injuries the tenant sustained when a board on the stairs collapsed, causing the tenant to fall. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the landlord because the tenant could not show that the landlord had knowledge of any dangerous condition on the leased premises. The tenant has appealed. Discerning no error, we affirm.
