KIMBERLIE LOIS EDMONSON v. TERRY LYNN WILSON (Tenn. Ct. App. December 9, 2011)
In this case, Kimberlie Lois Edmonson ("Ms. Edmonson") filed suit against Terry Lynn Wilson ("Mr. Wilson") for breach of an alleged partnership agreement. Prior to trial, the parties reached an agreement. Following the announcement of the agreement in court by counsel, Ms. Edmonson refused to honor the agreement. Mr. Wilson filed a motion to enforce the agreement, and the trial court denied the motion. The case proceeded to a bench trial, and the court held in favor of Ms. Edmonson. Mr. Wilson appeals. We hold that the court should have enforced the settlement agreement and reverse the decision of the court.
