Rule 10.01. Caption — Names of Parties

0310-01-01-.01  APPLICABILITY OF TENNESSEE RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE AND CORRELATION WITH T.C.A. § 9-8-403(a)(1).

TRCP Rule 10.01 is followed, but is modified by deleting the reference to county and instead indicating the grand division where the claim is pending. If a pleading is filed before the claim is assigned to a Commissioner, then the grand division in which the plaintiff resides may be used.

Every pleading shall contain a caption setting forth the name of the court and county wherein the action is filed or is pending, the title of the action, the file number, and a designation as in Rule 7.01. In the complaint the title of the action shall include the names of all the parties, but in other pleadings it is sufficient to state the name of the first party on each side with an appropriate indication of other parties.

Editor’s Note:  The text of original Tenn. R. Civ. Pro. 10.01 is set forth below so that the reader can readily see the changes adopted by the Claims Commission.
