MICHAEL SHROPSHIRE v. BETTY ROACH (Tenn. Ct. App. February 2, 2009).

A home seller appeals a jury verdict finding that she intentionally misrepresented water conditions in the basement in connection with the sale of her home. According to the seller, the jury verdict was against the weight of the evidence and the trial court erroneously allowed opinion testimony from the contractor who repaired the water damage. We affirm, finding that material evidence supports that the jury verdict and that the trial court did not err in allowing the testimony.
