Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Carl Lester Byrd, Jr., New Market, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

W. Stuart Scott, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Appalachian Electric Cooperative.

Judge(s): FRIERSON

The trial court dismissed the plaintiff’s claim of outrageous conduct/intentional infliction of emotional distress filed against his employer because the plaintiff had previously filed a workers’ compensation claim against the employer, seeking compensation for injuries arising out of the same incident. The plaintiff has appealed the dismissal of his claim. Discerning no reversible error, we affirm the trial court’s judgment of dismissal. We decline Appalachian’s request for an award of attorney’s fees, determining that Mr. Byrd’s appeal was not frivolous or taken solely for delay.
