Opinions of the Tennessee Supreme Court

Kershaw v. Levy, No. M2017-01129-SC-R11-CV, 583 S.W.3d 544, 547-48 (Tenn. 2019).

Ms. Kershaw argues in this appeal that the trial court misapplied the doctrine of judicial estoppel; this issue presents a question of law, which is also reviewed de novo. Frazier v. Pomeroy, No. M2005-00911-COA-R3CV, 2006 WL 3542534, at *10 (Tenn. Ct. App. Dec. 7, 2006) citing Carvell v. Bottoms, 900 S.W.2d 23, 30 (Tenn. 1995); Terrell v. Terrell, 200 Tenn. 289, 292 S.W.2d 179, 182 (1956)) (“A trial court’s application of the doctrine of judicial estoppel presents a question of law which this court reviews de novo.”).
