A lawsuit against Nashville restaurant owner Randy Rayburn has been tossed out by the Tennessee Court of Appeals for lacking merit, The Tennessean reports. The suit was filed over a Tennessean article that mentioned the culinary arts program at Nashville State Community College, which was once directed by Tom Loftis and was overhauled by Rayburn. Loftis sued Rayburn after the article stated that Loftis was fired during the overhaul, despite the fact that Rayburn was never quoted in the article. Loftis’ case has been sent back to the trial court to determine if he must pay for Rayburn’s legal fees, but Loftis’ attorney said his client is also examining an appeal to the Tennessee Supreme Court.
