As might have been expected a large portion of the litigation before the Tennessee appellate courts during the Survey period involved tort actions. Most of these actions, of course, were based upon negligence. There were several cases involving the intentional harms of assault and battery and false imprisonment. No cases were decided involving deceit, defamation, strict liability or interference with advantageous relations.
