Litigation Practice Forum 2023: The Questionable Status Quo of the Economic Loss Doctrine


Two years ago, in Milan Supply Chain Solutions v. Navistar, Inc.., the Tennessee Supreme Court affirmed that the economic loss doctrine “generally preclude(s) contracting parties from pursuing tort recovery for purely economic or commercial losses associated with the contractual relationship.” But questions persist about how far the doctrine goes. Currently pending before the court is a case, Commercial Painting Company v. Weitz Company LLC, that may decide that issue. Join Memphis lawyers Tannera Gibson, Will Perry, Molly Glover, Nicole Grida as they discuss Milan, Weitz, and the questionable status quo of the economic loss doctrine in Tennessee.
