Request for Accounting

Decisions of the Tennessee Supreme Court

Decisions of the Tennessee Court of Appeals

Meadows v. Story, No. M2020-00886-COA-R3-CV, p. 11 (Tenn. Ct. App. Sept. 29, 2022).

A request for an accounting is “left to the sound discretion of the trial court.” Huggins v. McKee, 500 S.W.3d 360, 374 (Tenn. Ct. App. 2016). So we review a trial court’s decision on such a request for an abuse of discretion. Id. An accounting is unnecessary where a party “ha[s] access to or the ability to access the financial records.” See id. at 377-78.
