The Young Lawyers Section member attorneys Kaley Pennington Bell and Michael S. Holder with Leitner, Williams, Dooley & Napolitan, PLLC will present November's TDLA FREE webinar.
In this seminar, we will be discussing a recent Middle District of Tennessee case where an alleged sexual assault victim sued three separate fraternity entities—the national fraternity, house corporation and fraternity chapter for negligence and gross negligence. The three fraternity entities filed separate motions for summary judgment that were granted by the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee as to all claims. The seminar will provide a broad overview of the arguments used in the fraternity entities’ motions for summary judgment, the Plaintiff’s response to the motions, and the Court’s ruling. Additionally, we will discuss the importance of addressing implied claims, the weaknesses in Plaintiff’s drafted responses pointed out by the Court, and highlight effective motion drafting strategies.
Registrants will receive a webinar link prior to the webinar. Times shown are EST, the webinar will take place at 3pm EST/ 2pm CST and last one hour. One hour of General TN CLE will be applied for.
