Court reviews whether trial court properly found that Appellant was an unlicensed contractor

GLEN CRUZEN v. AYMAN AWAD (Tenn. Ct. App. June 25, 2010)

This case arises out of the alleged breach of a contractual agreement entered by and between Appellant and Appellee for the repair and renovation of a commercial building. Appellant filed suit, asserting that Appellee had failed to fully compensate Appellant for his work on the building. The trial court granted Appellee's motion for summary judgment, finding that Appellant was an unlicensed contractor under Tenn. Code Ann. secton 62-6-102, and that his recovery was, therefore, limited to actual documented expenses under Tenn. Code Ann. section 62-6-103(b). Finding no error, we affirm.
