Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Brad Scarbrough and Chris Holleman, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, Harakas Construction, Inc.

Attorneys 2:

Jon Cooper and J. Brooks Fox, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.

David N. Garst, J. Wallace Irvin, and Brian S. Faughnan, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Dale and Associates, Inc.

Judge(s): SWINEY

Harakas Construction, Inc. appeals the judgment of the Chancery Court for Davidson County (“the Trial Court”) granting summary judgment to Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County (“Metro”) and Dale and Associates, Inc. (“Dale”). We find and hold that the Trial Court correctly granted summary judgment to Metro based upon sovereign immunity and that the Trial Court correctly granted summary judgment to Dale because Dale had negated essential elements of Harakas’s claim.
