I understand and agree to camera surveillance in the workplace for security. But my employer wants to use it to “keep an eye on productivity”. She claims she’s not going to tell us where said cameras are, but I feel like this may be a violation of employee privacy. Especially if we need to... View More
In Tennessee, employers generally have the right to install cameras in the workplace for purposes such as security and monitoring productivity, provided the surveillance does not occur in areas where employees have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as bathrooms or locker rooms. However, the...View More
An attorney requested records from the circuit court clerk’s office in Jefferson County, TN regarding a 13 year old case involving a petition for an order of protection and subsequent granting of a restraining order by a judge. I was the petitioner. The records released to this attorney contained... View More
In Tennessee, there are laws and regulations that govern the handling of sensitive personal information in public records, including those held by the circuit court clerk's office. Generally, these offices are expected to redact confidential information like social security and driver's...View More
In Tennessee, property owners or companies causing nuisances to neighboring properties may be liable for damages.

The constitutionality of zoning laws that prohibit living in an RV on your own property can depend on various factors. Constitutional rights such as property rights, due process, and privacy might be relevant in this context. Courts often consider local government interests in maintaining...View More
No, but any lien execution is subject to the priority deed of trust. The notemaker and owner still loses possession while still owing the debt. Foreclosure of the senior lien destroys the secondary liens unless there is a surplus.
Yes, the Tennessee Supreme Court has actually held that a police officer must provide an individual the opportunity to make their own arrangements for their vehicle rather than inventory search the vehicle and tow it in a case called Drinkard. However, this issue only becomes relevant as far as any...View More
I was driving in a 5 lane road and the bus was stopped on the oncoming traffic side 4 lanes over. I was looking in my mirror at a guy on my tail. I looked back down to see the bus and hit my brakes. The guy behind me came even closer so I let off and eased forward past the bus with the guy behind... View More
It is up to the LEO whether to arrest you or summon you to Court. Here a Citation was issued, but he is requiring you to be booked. You must show up for the process or an Arrest Warrant for a Class A Misdemeanor will probably be issued.

Even though that is a very unique way to take your prescribed medicine it would be very hard to prove that the substance you were ingesting is a prescribed medicine. Long story short I would suggest not doing this.

Absolutely. Many Law Enforcement Officers drive their own vehicles all the time, and still conduct stops and enforce laws. They may show a badge or activate their lights, or just follow you until you stop.
Church objected, so his permit was denied. Are we still at risk of that happening today if we reapply? The church is not adjacent to the store and is not touching the property line. It's roughly a quarter mile away.
Probably- most cities have local ordinances which specify that any business selling alcohol have to be located various distances from churches or schools. ( The distance can vary- depending on whether the sale is for consumption on the premises or for "take out" - it can also vary for...View More
