This case is before us upon mandate from the Tennessee Supreme Court for reconsideration of our previous opinion, Johnson v. Floyd, No. W2012-00207-COA-R3-CV, 2012 WL 2500900 (Tenn. Ct. App. June 29, 2012), in light of the Tennessee Supreme Court’s decision in Rajvongs v. Wright, --- S.W.3d ----, 2013 WL 6504425 (Tenn. 2013). Based on the Tennessee Supreme Court’s decision, we reverse the decision of the trial court and remand for further proceedings.
NOTE: In a nutshell, this opinion allowed a one-hundred-twenty-day extension to the saving statute because this case is a "transitional case." This post, however, should be read in conjunction with my June 30, 2012 post to gain a better understanding of the issues at hand.
