Brook Lathram and Jonathan Nelson Author Article on Tennessee Rule of Evidence 404(b)


January 13, 2015

Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Brook Lathram and Jonathan Nelson authored the article, "The Time is Right to Amend Rule 404(b)," that was published in the Fall 2014 (Volume 45, Number 1) issue of the The University of Memphis Law Review. In the article, Brook and Jonathan analyze the definition of "person" established by the Tennessee Supreme Court's 2002 decision in State v. Stevens. In 2014, the Tennessee General Assembly passed the Channon Christian Act to abrogate, in part, the definition issued in Stevens. Brook and Jonathan argue that, while the latest Act is commendable, the Supreme Court Rules Advisory Commission should go further and propose to the Tennessee Supreme Court an amendment to Tennessee Rule 404(b) that makes clear that the rule applies in both civil and criminal cases and without regard to whether the "other acts" are those of a party or non-party.
