Michael Sanderson v. University of Tennessee - Concurring
01A01-9607-CH-00289

In this case, a student at the University of Tennessee was charged with plagiarism. After a hearing, an administrative law judge found that the  student had not committed plagiarism. The University Chancellor reversed the ALJ’s decision, issuing a final order finding the student guilty of plagiarism. The student appealed this decision to the chancery court, pursuant to the Tennessee Uniform Administrative Procedures Act, which affirmed the finding of plagiarism. We affirm the decision of the chancery court.

Alexander Friedmann, v. Charles Bass, et al.
01A01-9707-CH-00331

This appeal involves a prison disciplinary proceeding. After being found guilty of engaging in an unauthorized monetary transaction, the prisoner filed a petition for common-law writ of certiorari in the Chancery Court for Davidson County alleging that the disciplinary proceeding violated his due process rights. The trial court granted the prison officials’ motion for summary judgment and dismissed the petition on the ground that the petitioner had failed to make out a due process claim as a matter of law. We affirm the summary judgment in accordance with Tenn. Ct. App. R. 10(b).1
