House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Michael Curcio, R-Dickson, and Sen. Todd Gardenhire, R-Chattanooga, introduced a bill yesterday that was drafted by the TBA’s Construction Law Section and supported by the TBA. HB875/SB682 amends TCA 66-21-108 by adding a malice requirement when imposing penalties on those filing fraudulent liens, while protecting those who make a good faith claim to a lien, but the lien is somehow erroneous or deficient.
