Edwin E. Wallis, Jr., Jackson, Tennessee, and Evan Cope and Nicholas C. Christiansen, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellee, Dement Construction Company, LLC.

Judge(s): BENNETT

This case arises from landowners' counter-suit for damages allegedly resulting from a construction company's use of the landowners' property to store excess topsoil from a road construction project. Following a trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the construction company, finding that the construction company was not responsible for the alleged damage to the property. The landowners appeal, asserting that the trial court made erroneous evidentiary rulings and failed to properly instruct the jury. Finding no error, we affirm the trial court.
