During the period covered by this Survey several cases have raised rather interesting points for consideration under the law of agency. On one occasion the Tennessee Supreme Court declined the opportunity of joining the ranks of the majority of states in moving toward a more modern rule on employer's liability with respect to an employee's child injured negligently by the employee. In this and other decisions, the courts have followed Tennessee precedent rather closely, with the result that there are few changes in the law of agency.
