Raybin And Perky Tennessee Supreme Court Hot List
David Raybin, Sarah Perky, and Ben Raybin edit the Tennessee Supreme Court Hot List which will keep you informed about the recent grants of review in both civil and criminal cases and what it may mean to your practice.
The following list addresses all pending cases where review was granted in order of the date of grant of review. Since cases often involve multiple issues and the Court generally does not specify which ones are of concern, the issues identified below may not always be the ones addressed in the Court's opinions. Each month we “prune” the list to remove cases which have been decided so the list is as current as possible.
