Sims|Funk Prevails in First Ever Bench Trial in Tennessee Business Court

In May of 2017, Scott Sims and Michael O’Neill prevailed in the trial of a complex “business divorce” action in the Business Court pilot project of the Tennessee Supreme Court.  The trial, which lasted eight days and culminated in a 65-page decision, was the first bench trial ever conducted in the Business Court.  In addition to obtaining a significant monetary award for Sims|Funk’s client, Mr. Sims and Mr. O’Neill were able to secure other substantial relief that included judicial termination of the plaintiff’s membership interest in the limited liability company at issue, which was founded and owned 50/50 by the parties.
