If you are a business owner, you might operate your business under your name, a different name but as an unincorporated entity, or through a separate business entity. In Tennessee, it is common to operate businesses as a limited liability company (“LLCs”). This blog is to continue the discussion started in a previous post (click here for prior post) regarding the benefits of forming an LLC in Tennessee and to briefly discuss piercing the corporate veil, a mechanism to hold a business owner personally liable for the business’s liabilities..

Federal immigration authorities have recently formalized a policy to send deportation agents to federal, state and local courthouses to make arrests, dismissing complaints from judges and advocacy groups that it instills fear among crime victims, witnesses and family members.

On January 26, 2018, the Western Section of the Tennessee Court of Appeals addressed what happens when a commercial tenant holds over the term of a lease in Jones v. VCPHCS I, LLC, No. W2016-02142-COA-R3-CV.
A Tennessee appeals court last week sent a strong message in a public records lawsuit against the city of Chattanooga, ordering the trial court to award the full $71,343 in attorney fees and expenses incurred by the citizen who brought the case.
It was the second time an appeals court overruled the Hamilton County judge in the case.
The first time, the Hamilton County judge had found the city had not "acted in bad faith as a result of its slowness in producing the public records requested" and denied the request of Rebecca Little to pay her attorney fees. But the appeals court disagreed, saying the city of Chattanooga "knew it was obligated to produce and willfully did not." It remanded the case back to the trial court and ordered the judge to determine the amount of attorney's fees to be awarded.
