Authoring Judge: Judge William B. Cain
Trial Court Judge: Walter C. Kurtz
Chief Emmett H. Turner, of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County Police Department, discharged Appellant from employment as a police officer for certain violations of various rules and regulations. The officer appealed his discharge and, after a hearing, the Administrative Law Judge reduced his penalty to a thirty day suspension. The appeal was further heard before the Civil Service Commission, which reversed the ALJ and upheld the dismissal of the officer. The Chancery Court of Davidson County upheld the action of the Civil Service Commission. The officer appeals, and we affirm the judgment of the trial court.

Maury County Court of Appeals 06/25/92
DeShayne Neal v. Jerry Neal
Authoring Judge: Judge William B. Cain
Trial Court Judge: Gerald L. Ewell, Sr.
This is an appeal from the chancery court order refusing to modify the parties' divorce decree and permanent parenting plan. Mother filed a Petition to Modify, and Father filed an Answer and Counter Petition also requesting modification. The Chancellor dismissed both the Petition and Counter Petition finding that there had not been sufficient change in circumstances since the initial entry of the divorce decree to justify modification. Upon review of the Permanent Parenting Plan and Final Decree of the Chancery Court, we find that this Permanent Parenting Plan and the judge's approval of such plan do not meet the requirements of Tennessee law. As such, the Permanent Parenting Plan is vacated, and the case is remanded to the trial court.
