New Case on Causation
The Middle Section of the Tennessee Court of Appeals just issued its opinion in Robbins ex rel. Robbins v. Perry County, Tennessee, No. M2008-00548-COA-R3-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. Apr. 28, 2009). The opinion has a good discussion of causation in Tennessee.
The opinion also discusses the standard of review for a Rule 12 motion to dismiss. The Court's discussion is a good refresher to the Tennessee practitioner.
