Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Stephen Hurst, LaFollette, Tennessee, for the appellant, Stanley Creekmore, Administrator for the Estate of Alma B. Long.

Attorneys 2:

Vic Pryor and Kathy Parrott, Jacksboro, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jason S. Hackler.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

This is the second appeal of this property dispute concerning a mother's reservation of a life estate in property conveyed to her son pursuant to a warranty deed. The mother initially brought suit against the son to enforce her right to possession. She later sought to amend her complaint in an attempt to attack the validity of the deed. Before ruling upon the motion to amend, the trial court granted summary judgment based upon the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations for ejectment actions. This court reversed in Long v. Creekmore, No. E2012-01453-COA-R3-CV, 2013 WL 1320515 (Tenn. Ct. App. Mar. 28, 2013). Upon remand, the trial court denied the motion to amend the complaint and dismissed the action following the death of the mother and son. The administrator of the mother's estate appeals. We affirm the trial court.
