Tony W. Carrick Et Al. v. City of Shelbyville, TennesseeAnnotate this Case
Authoring Judge: Judge Kristi M. Davis
Trial Court Judge: Judge M. Wyatt Burk
Following a single-vehicle accident on a road owned and controlled by the City of Shelbyville (the City ), Tony Carrick and his wife, Linda Carrick (together, Plaintiffs ), filed suit against the City alleging damages for personal injury, injury to property, and loss of consortium. The City moved for summary judgment on the basis that it retained its immunity under the Governmental Tort Liability Act ( GTLA ) because it had no actual or constructive notice of a defective, unsafe, or dangerous condition on the road where the accident occurred. The trial court agreed with the City and granted its motion for summary judgment. Having reviewed the record, we conclude that genuine issues of material fact exist regarding whether the City had actual or constructive notice of the condition at issue. We reverse.
