Highlights from Current Issue
 

 In a case involving dissenting shareholders forced out of a closely held Nashville corporation, the Tennessee Supreme Court has overruled its prior case law and adopted a standard that allows trial courts to use modern methods to determine the “fair value” of the dissenting shareholders’ stock.

• The Court of Appeals looked to the plain language of T.C.A. 66-7-102 to determine that there was no obligation for the Defendant to rebuild the Motel, following its destruction in a wildfire, where the parties had not specifically contracted for such a provision.

• T.C.A. 62-6-103 was amended affective June 23, 2009, and the changes to the statute were substantive in nature. The contract in this case was signed on June 2, 2008, and the complaint was filed on July 21, 2009. The Court held that the date of the contract signing was more significant than the date of the complaint, holding that the contractor was not subject to the limitation at the time of the signing. Thus, the Court declined to limit the contractor retroactively by the amended statute.
