Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Greer Craig and Lana Kaye Craig, Jonesborough, Tennessee, appellants, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Steven C. Huret, Robert L. Arrington, and Andrew D. Street, Kingsport, Tennessee, for appellee, Peoples Community Bank.

Judge(s): SUSANO

The plaintiffs, Greer Craig and Lana Kaye Craig, brought an action against Peoples Community Bank (the Bank). Their cause of action is essentially identical to Mr. Craig’s two prior actions, each of which previously had been dismissed with prejudice and not appealed. In the present action, the trial court applied the doctrines of res judicata and collateral estoppel and granted the Bank summary judgment. We affirm. Furthermore, we find this appeal to be frivolous. Accordingly, we remand this case to the trial court so it can award the Bank its reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses on appeal.
