Larry D. Turnley, Pro Se vs. State
M2003-02153-CCA-R3-HC
The Petitioner, Larry D. Turnley, appeals the trial court's dismissal of his petition for the writ of habeas corpus, which was treated as a petition for post- conviction relief by the trial court. The State has filed a motion requesting that this Court affirm the trial court's denial of relief pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals. The Petitioner filed his petition outside the statute of limitations for post-conviction purposes. Moreover, the petitioner is incarcerated in a federal prison, and federal prisoners are specifically excluded from state habeas corpus relief. Accordingly, the State's motion is granted, and the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.
Davidson County Court of Criminal Appeals 10/18/95
Bessie Lee King v. Davidson (NMN) Taylor - Concurring
02A01-9504-CV-000

This appeal arises out of a paternity action filed by the Plaintiff-Appellee, Bessie Lee King, against the Defendant-Appellant, Davidson Taylor, to establish the paternity of King's minor child, Davene. The action was originally filed in the Juvenile Court of Memphis and Shelby County, but was transferred to Circuit Court after Mr. Taylor requested a jury trial. Mr.  Taylor, Ms. King, and Davene submitted to a blood test. The sworn blood test results, which accompanied Appellee's motion for summary judgment, established that Mr. Taylor had a 99.65% probability of being Davene's father. Relying on both the blood test and T.C.A. § 24-7-112(b)(2) (Michie 1994), the trial court granted Ms. King's motion for summary judgment. Mr. Taylor appeals the decision of the trial court.

Paula Van Slyke (Fleming) v. Philp Edward Fleming - Concurring
01-A-01-9504-CV-00178

This case involves the question of whether a custodial parent may claim the benefit of changes in the child support guidelines promulgated after trial on her Petition for Increased Child Support, but before the trial court filed its Final Order. Because those changes were not raised in the  proceedings below, we decline to act on them here. Instead, we remand  the cause to the trial court for further proceedings.
