Posted by: Chandra Williams on Dec 4, 2015

Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jason D. Holleman and Cleveland D. Bain, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Cameo Bobo.

Attorneys 2:

John D. Burleson and Matthew R. Courtner, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, City of Jackson, Tennessee.

Judge(s): GOLDIN

Appellant filed suit against the City of Jackson after her home was demolished, asserting causes of action for trespass and inverse condemnation. The City of Jackson filed an answer denying any liability and later moved for summary judgment on all claims. After a hearing, the trial court determined that the trespass claim should be dismissed due to governmental immunity. Moreover, the trial court concluded that Appellant had failed to timely assert her inverse condemnation claim. Appellant appeals only the dismissal of her inverse condemnation claim. Having reviewed the trial court?s grant of summary judgment on that issue, we affirm.
