Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Connie Reguli, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, Polly Spann Kershaw.

Attorneys 2:

Jeffrey John Switzer, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jeffrey L. Levy.

Judge(s): GIBSON

This is a legal malpractice case. Appellant filed suit against Appellee, who had previously served as Appellant’s attorney in a divorce matter. Appellant alleged that she suffered monetary damages and was convicted of criminal contempt as a result of the negligent legal representation she received from Appellee in her divorce case. Appellee filed a motion for summary judgment claiming that Appellant’s claims were, among other things, barred by the doctrine of judicial estoppel as a result of the sworn statements Appellant made in conjunction with her divorce settlement. The trial court agreed and granted summary judgment in favor of Appellee. We affirm.
