Rule 39. Trial by Jury or by the Court

Advisory Commission Comments to Rules 39.01-39.03

Advisory Commission Comments

39.01: Tennessee statutes governing trials by jury in chancery courts expressly recognize that certain types of issues are not triable by jury. See Tenn. Code Ann. § 21-1-103.

39.02: The provisions of this Rule are designed to give the trial court discretion to grant a jury trial even though timely demand has not been previously made, if the trial court deems it in the interest of justice to do so.
