Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

E. Ronald Chestnut, Greeneville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Heather Reed.

Attorneys 2:

Jeffrey A. Cobble, Greeneville, Tennessee, for the appellees, Dennis Hopson and Joyce J. Hopson.

Judge(s): GOLDIN

This case arises from an exception to a claim filed against decedent’s estate. Appellant/Administratrix filed an exception to a claim brought by the Appellees, who are the decedent’s parents. The trial court found that the Statute of Frauds, Tennessee Code Annotated Section 29-2-101, was not applicable to bar the claim. The trial court further held that the claimed amount was a loan to the decedent and not a gift as Appellant argued. Discerning no error, we affirm and remand.
