In this tort action, the defendants appeal from an award of compensatory damages capped by the trial court at $130,000 pursuant to the Governmental Tort Liability Act (“GTLA”). They also seek to reverse the trial court’s decision to assess them with discretionary costs of $3,440.98. We affirm all of the trial court’s judgment except the award of discretionary costs.

Ray Gabrielle Cox v. Anderson County Highway Dept. & Anderson County, Tennessee - Dissenting
E1999-01697-COA-R3-CV
Authoring Judge: Judge D. Michael Swiney
Trial Court Judge: Judge James B. Scott, Jr.

I dissent from the majority opinion affirming the judgment of the Trial Court awarding compensatory damages of $130,000. From my review of the record, Plaintiff did not meet her burden of proving that Defendant had notice of the condition of the roadway, and therefore I would reverse the judgment of the Trial Court.
