Linda Diane Cobb v. State of TennesseeAnnotate this Case
Authoring Judge: Judge W. Neal McBrayer
Trial Court Judge: Judge Robert Lee Holloway, Jr.
The plaintiff filed suit alleging discriminatory and harassing practices violative of the Tennessee Human Rights Act. The defendants moved for summary judgment, and the trial court dismissed the plaintiff s claims, holding that the defendants had negated essential elements of the plaintiff s claims. On appeal, the plaintiff argues that the trial court erred in failing to allow for additional discovery before ruling on the request for summary judgment. The plaintiff also argues that the trial court failed to address all her claims and that genuine issues of material fact precluded summary judgment. We conclude that the trial court properly granted summary judgment. Therefore, we affirm.
