RULE 2. ONE FORM OF ACTION
Rule 2: One Form of Action.
All actions in law or equity shall be known as “civil actions.”
Advisory Commission Comments.
Prior to the adoption of these Rules, Tennessee practice spoke of “civil actions at law”(T.C.A. §20-201) [since repealed] and of “suits”in chancery (T.C.A. §21-102) [since repealed]. Rule 2 simplifies the terminology of applying a single term to all civil actions.Back to Top
