Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Harold C. Wimberly, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Judy F. Hutson.

Attorneys 2:

James W. Brooks, Wartburg, Tennessee, for the appellee, Bernice Hennessee.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Summary judgment was granted to the defendant in an action brought by the executrix of an estate to declare the rights of the parties to joint bank accounts created by the decedent. The executrix appeals the grant of summary judgment. We conclude that there is a genuine issue of material fact as to whether the decedent was unduly influenced and accordingly reverse the judgment and remand the case for further proceedings.
