FRANCIS KEITH FARRIS
VS.
RHONDA GAIL WATSON
Court:TCA

Attorneys:                          
For Appellant                 For Appellee

D. MITCHELL BRYANT            RANDY G. ROGERS
Cleveland, Tennessee          Cleveland, Tennessee

Judge:SUSANO

First Paragraph:

In this post-divorce proceeding, the trial court, acting on the parties'
competing petitions, modified an earlier custody order.  The decree now
before us leaves the appellee, Rhonda Gail Watson, formerly Farris
("Mother"), as the sole custodian of the parties' minor child, Blake
Farris, age 12; but orders that "each party shall have the child...for a
period of one week, said weeks to be alternated."  Francis Keith Farris
("Father") appeals, contending that the evidence preponderates against
the trial court's decision not to award him sole custody of Blake.
Father also complains that the trial court erred in not modifying his
$90-per-week child support obligation.

DARRELL O. GALDE VS. GEORGE D. KERITSIS Court:TCA Attorneys: George F. Legg, Anna F. Hinds, Knoxville, for Appellant. David S. Wigler, Knoxville, for Appellee. Judge:INMAN First Paragraph: A corporation styled SCC, Inc., was organized in May, 1992 by the parties. Each was issued a certificate for 500 shares of capital stock. The company prospered. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1993, gross receipts were three million dollars; two years later, its gross receipts were nearly six million dollars. Keritsis was the CEO, and he informed Galde, during the growth period, that the company should be sold. He obtained Galde's endorsed certificate to "free his hand" in negotiating a sale, and agreed to pay Galde 50 percent of the proceeds. Corporate minutes memorialized this transaction. But a sale was never consummated; rather, Keritsis looted SCC's treasury. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1993, he took $142,000.00; for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1994, he took $177,000.00; the succeeding fiscal year he took $1,264,713.00. For the calendar year 1995 he reported taxable income from SCC, Inc. of $1,569,000.00. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCA/Galde_ca3.WP6
