Susan Turner v. Jeffrey Purvis
M2002-00023-COA-R3-CV
Authoring Judge: Presiding Judge Patricia J. Cottrell
Trial Court Judge: Michael R. Jones
Mother appeals from a trial court modification of the custody and visitation arrangement which had been in place since the divorce in 1997. The previous arrangement gave Mother primary residential custody, and Father was to have liberal visitation as agreed upon by the parties. After declining to adopt the parenting plan submitted by either Mother or Father, the trial court devised a plan establishing a specific residential schedule. Mother argues that there was not a material change of circumstances that warranted the trial court's decision. Because we determine that a material change in circumstances occurred and because the modification of the custody arrangement was in the best interests of the children, we affirm the decision of the trial court.

Sevier County Court of Appeals 06/09/97
Pacific Properties, v. Home Federal Bank of Tennessee, v. Michael S. Stalcup
03A01-9701-CV-00020
Authoring Judge: Senior Judge William H. Inman
Trial Court Judge: Judge William R. Holt, Jr.

This action for conversion was submitted to a jury which returned a general verdict for the plaintiff, thereby implicitly finding that the fact-driven principal defense of the Statute of Limitations was not well-taken. Home Federal appeals and presents for review issues which, as paraphrased, question the propriety of the submission of the case to the jury, whether the defense of Statute of Limitations was well-taken, as a matter of law, whether requested jury instructions should have been given and whether the drawer of a check adequately instructed the drawee Bank as to its disposition.
