Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

William Gary Blackburn and Bryant Beatty Kroll, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Thomas Nathan Loftis, Sr.

Attorneys 2:

Daniel Alexander Horwitz and Alan Mark Sowell, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Randy Rayburn.

Judge(s): BENNETT

The former director of a culinary program filed a complaint alleging defamation by implication or innuendo and false light invasion of privacy against an individual he claimed was the source of statements made in a newspaper article. The defendant moved to dismiss the complaint on the basis that the statements were not actionable as a matter of law. The trial court dismissed the complaint, and the former director appealed. We affirm the trial court’s judgment dismissing the complaint and remand the issue of attorney’s fees to the trial court.
