SR Knoxville attorney Federico Flores obtained a dismissal in the Tennessee Court of Appeals by prevailing on a Motion to Dismiss. MARK T. CROSS v. SHARAE PATTERSON, ET AL..

In a matter concerning construction defect, breach of contract, and consumer protection allegations, Flores obtained a dismissal in the trial court and then again in the Court of Appeals by demonstrating to the Appellate Tribunal that the opposing party failed to follow the Rules of Appellate Procedure.  Spotlighting the error, along with a recitation of the case’s history in the Trial Court, was enough to persuade the Court of Appeals that a dismissal was appropriate under the circumstances, even before briefing on the merits commenced.

The Court’s ruling illustrates that attention to detail and knowledge of the Rules of Procedure can turn a case in your favor.  Spicer Rudstrom, PLLC has experienced litigation attorneys across the mid-south to help with a wide range of civil matters whether in a trial court or at the appellate level.
