Advisory Commission Comment
This Rule retains the substance of Tenn. Code Ann. § 29-14-101 et seq., but makes the procedure consistent with that provided for other actions under the Rules. It specifically provides for trial by jury of disputed issues of fact in the same forum. The discretionary provision for a speedy hearing is designated to avoid delay in the trial of pending suits. The right of trial by jury is not intended to restrict the discretion of the trial court in entertaining the action, but to provide a vehicle to decide disputed factual issues if the action is entertained.
