Attorneys 2:

Jon A. York, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, Patrick David McCollum.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

This is the second appeal of a case involving the alleged breach of a construction contract. The plaintiff general contractor hired the defendant subcontractor to build and install cabinetry for a movie theater. The subcontract provided that the work should be completed by the date the theater was scheduled to open. However, at the theater‘s opening, several items remained unfinished. The general contractor refused to pay despite the subcontractor‘s demand for payment. The general contractor filed suit alleging breach of contract for failure to complete the project in a timely manner and for defective work. The subcontractor counterclaimed for breach of contract for failure to pay under the contract. After a bench trial, the trial court found in favor of the subcontractor and awarded damages. The general contractor now appeals. Discerning no error, we affirm.
