COLIN MARTIN v. MARY KATRINA DOUGHTIE AND GRANGE MUTUAL CASUALTY INSURANCE COMPANY (Tenn. Ct. App. January 5, 2010)
Guest who was injured during a party at residence where alcohol was consumed brought negligence action against the host. The guest also sued his uninsured/underinsured motorist carrier seeking payment under the policy. The trial court granted the insurance carrier's motion for summary judgment finding that the policy did not extend coverage under the circumstances. The trial court subsequently granted the host's motion for summary judgment finding that she owed no duty of care to the guest at the time of the injury. The guest appeals the trial court's action with respect to both defendants. Finding no error, we affirm.
