Reference Number: 
CTAS-768

The Tennessee Governmental Tort Liability Act does not apply to many types of actions filed in both state and federal courts.  In state court, for example, compensation, breach of contract, inverse condemnation and many other types of common law and statutory causes of action can be the basis of a non-tort action.  The limits of the Tennessee Governmental Tort Liability Act do not apply to these non-tort actions.
