Chancery Courts are courts of equity that are based on the English system in which the chancellor acted as the “King’s conscience.” A chancellor, the judge who presides over chancery courts, may modify the application of strict legal rules and adapt relief to the circumstances of individual cases. Chancery Courts handle a variety of issues including business and contract disputes, applications for injunctions, and other non-tort/injury matters. The Davidson County Chancery Court also hears direct appeals from local boards and administrative matters, and has exclusive jurisdiction over appeals from State agencies such as Departments of Revenue, Environment and Conservation, and Commerce and Insurance. It also has exclusive jurisdiction over challenges to actions by the State Legislature pursuant to the Tennessee Constitution.
