Controversies• In 2003, Sandy Kurtz (environmental educator), filed a lawsuit against Corker as Osborne Enterprises (an affiliate of the real estate company Corker Group) sold protected wetlands near South Chickamauga Creek in Chattanooga to Wal-Mart for $4.6 million. However, the lawsuit was dismissed on July 15, 2003.

In 2006, during Corker's Senate campaign, Kurtz filed a second lawsuit. However, on October 13, 2006, lawyers involved in the case announced a settlement agreement.
• During his tenure as Mayor of Chattanooga, he was criticized for placing his Hamilton County real estate holdings and businesses into a blind trust to avoid conflicts of interest. However, on October 11, 2006, The Commercial Appeal reported that Corker's Blind Trust "may not have been all that blind."
• In 2014, he was criticized for making a statement in connection to Volkswagon manufacturing. He said that he "had conversations" and "based on those am assured that should the workers vote against the UAW, Volkswagen will announce in the coming weeks that it will manufacture its new mid-size SUV here in Chattanooga."
