QUINTIN G. MACDONALD, ET AL. v. BILL GUNTHER, d/b/a BJK PROPERTY INSPECTIONS (Tenn.Ct.App. September 21, 2007).
The plaintiff homeowners contended that the defendant licensed property inspector had performed a negligent or fraudulent home inspection on the house they subsequently purchased, and that as a result, they incurred many unanticipated expenses for repairs. The parties agreed to resolve their dispute through binding arbitration, which resulted in an arbitration award of nearly $100,000 for the homeowners. The trial court granted the plaintiffs' motion to confirm the award. The defendant argues on appeal that the court should have dismissed the plaintiffs' motion to confirm because of their failure to comply with the court's scheduling order. We affirm the trial court.
