In the matter, the Plaintiffs sued their bank and others, alleging numerous theories of tort, contract and statutory liability against the bank. Plaintiffs were robbed at their home on two separate occasions following substantial cash withdrawals from the bank. Based on a keen understanding of the legal duties owed by the bank under Tennessee law, Mr. Murrah and Mr. Lyons filed a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim shortly after suit was filed. After extensive briefing and oral argument in the trial court, the trial judge granted the motion and dismissed all claims against the bank. On appeal, the Tennessee Court of Appeals agreed with the arguments made on behalf of the bank and affirmed the trial court’s dismissal. Finally, on June 8, 2018, the Tennessee Supreme Court denied Plaintiff’s request for review, thereby fully and finally concluding the matter.
This case exemplifies the Firm’s acumen for identifying and effectively executing decisive exit strategies on behalf of its clients defending lawsuits.
