Opinions of the Tennessee Court of Appeals


Bank of New York Mellon v. Chamberlain, No. M2021-00684-COA-R3-CV, p. 25 (Tenn. Ct. App. Aug. 1, 2022). 

Trial courts have considerable discretion with regard to granting Tenn. R. Civ. P. 12.06 motions. Stanbury Law Firm v. IRS, 221 F.3d 1059, 1063 (8th Cir.2000); Alvarado-Morales v. Digital Equip. Corp., 843 F.2d 613, 618 (1st Cir. 1988); Krisa v. Equitable Life Assurance Soc’y, 109 F.Supp.2d 316, 319 (M.D. Penn. 2000). Accordingly, appellate courts review decisions regarding Tenn. R. Civ. P. 12.06 motions using the deferential “abuse of discretion” standard of review.
