Chapter 2: Alienation of Affections
Note: The tort of alienation of affections was abolished by the Tennessee General Assembly effective July 1, 1989. Section 1, Chapter 517, Public Acts of Tennessee. The Tennessee Supreme Court also abolished the tort in Dupuis v. Hand, 814 S.W.2d 340 (Tenn. 1991), thus voiding a claim against the defendant that was pending at the time Chapter 517 became effective.
