Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Todd G. Cole and Shea T. Hasenauer, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, Joseph Sweat.

Attorneys 2:

Rachel M. Casias, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, City of McMinnville, Tennessee.

Judge(s): CLEMENT

The plaintiff, a former firefighter with the City of McMinnville Fire Department, brought this retaliatory discharge claim against his previous employer under the Tennessee Public Protection Act. The City filed a motion for summary judgment arguing that the plaintiff was unable to prove that the City’s proffered reason for the discharge was pretextual. Finding no genuine dispute, the trial court granted the motion and dismissed the complaint. We affirm.
