Tennessee Case Alert - Younger v. Okbahhanes

22 Feb 2021 8:00 AM | Mary Gadd (Administrator)

On January 28, 2021, the Court of Appeals for the Eastern Section, in a case of first impression, interpreted Tennessee Code Annotated §28-3-104(a)(2) to extend the statute of limitations to two years when a traffic citation for failure to exercise due care was issued at the scene of the accident.  See Younger vs. Okbahhanes, 2011 Tenn. App. Lexis 33 (January 28, 2021). 

            TDLA member Sean Martin with Carr Allison in Chattanooga is the attorney for the appellant. To aid in his application to the Tennessee Supreme Court, he would like to know whether you have had or currently have a case involving Tennessee Code Annotated section 28-3-104 (a)(2).  He is also interested in learning if you have received a new lawsuit since January 28, 2021 that attempts to revive a case thought to have been barred by the one year statute of limitations but now has a two year statute based on this holding.
