Carl E. Jordan, v. Tennessee Board of Paroles, et al.
01A01-9607-CH-00347

An inmate in the custody of the Department of Correction filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari to challenge the Parole Board’s refusal to grant him parole. The Chancery Court dismissed the Petition for failure to comply with the time limitations for filing. We affirm the dismissal on the alternate ground of failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

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

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.

Davidson County Court of Appeals 01/08/97
Joel Thomas Catlett, Jr., v. Marjean Ge'Nell Perryman Catlett
01A01-9605-CH-00244

The trial court granted the parties a divorce, and ordered the husband to pay the wife alimony in futuro. The parties were also granted joint custody of the teenage children, with the husband to have primary physical custody. On appeal, the husband challenges the nature and amount of the alimony award, and the trial court’s failure to order the wife to pay child support. We remand this case to enable the trialcourt to make the findings of fact in regard to child support that are required by Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-5-101(e)(1). In all other respects we affirm the trial court.
