Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

John J. Griffin, Jr. and Michael A. Johnson, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Auto-Owners Insurance Company.

Attorneys 2:

Andy Peters Davis, Winchester, Tennessee, for the appellees, Vanessa Holland and Jezekial Valentin.

Judge(s): DINKINS

An insurance company which issued a commercial general liability policy to the owner of a lawn care business sought a declaratory judgment that the policy did not provide coverage for a claim brought by the parent of a child who was injured by the gate on a trailer which was used to transport lawn care equipment. The company appeals the denial of its motion for summary judgment. Having determined that the insurance policy does not provide coverage for the claim at issue, we reverse the judgment of the trial court and remand with instructions to grant summary judgment in favor of the insurance company.
