Eastera Bell Porter, Individually and as Surviving Spouse and Next Friend of Jasper D. Porter, Deceased, v. Jess McGee, M.D. and Methodis Hospitals of Memphis, Inc., and Mahfuzur Rahman, M.D.
02A01-9509-CV-00204
Authoring Judge: Judge David R. Farmer
Trial Court Judge: Judge Robert A. Lanier

The sole issue in this appeal is whether the trial court abused its discretion in denying the motion filed by Appellant, Eastera Bell Porter, individually and as surviving spouse and next friend of Jasper D. Porter, deceased, under Rule 60 T.R.C.P., to set aside the summary judgments entered in favor of the appellees, Jesse McGee, M.D. and Methodist Hospitals of Memphis (Methodist). After review of the record, we find an absence of abuse by the trial court in this regard and affirm. We set forth our reasons below.

Shelby County Court of Appeals 01/09/97
Charles G. Miller, IV and wife, Brenda Miller, v. Dana R. Mabe and Shane Gant, A/K/A Shane Cooper, and The Glens Falls Insurance Company
01A01-9602CV-00056
Authoring Judge: Judge Holly Kirby Lillard
Trial Court Judge: Judge John A. Turnbull

This case involves the interpretation of an insurance policy. After being struck by a vehicle driven by defendant Dana R. Mabe (“Mabe”), plaintiff Charles G. Miller (“Miller”) filed this personal injury lawsuit against Mabe and defendant The Glens Falls Insurance Company (“Glens Falls”). The trial court granted Glens Falls’ motion for summary judgment, holding that Miller was not covered by the uninsured motorist provision of the Glens Falls policy because he was not “occupying” the insured vehicle at the time he was injured. Miller appealed the trial court’s decision. We affirm.
