SUPREME COURT OF TENNESSEE SUPREME COURT DISCRETIONARY APPEALS

Court:TSC - Rules

http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TSC_Rules/certlist_0610.wpd

JOHN FOSTER, et al. v. LARRY GLENN 

Court:TCA

Attorneys: 

Larry Glenn, Appellant, Pro Se

Sharon Frankenberg, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Appellees, John
Foster and Mamosa Foster

Judge: GODDARD

First Paragraph:

The origin of this appeal was a detainer warrant filed in the General
Sessions Court by John Foster and Mamosa Foster against Larry Glenn
seeking possession of property occupied by Mr. Glenn pursuant to an
instrument styled "AGREEMENT FOR DEED."   Mr. Glenn filed what he
styles a counter-complaint seeking damages for breach of contract and
prevailed in the General Sessions Court.  Upon appeal the Circuit
Court found in favor of the Fosters, but awarded Mr. Glenn a judgment
as to insurance proceeds received by the Fosters as a result of a
truck striking the house in question.  Mr. Glenn appeals the judgment
of the Trial Court.  We affirm.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. TIMOTHY D. McGLORY

Court:TCCA

Attorneys:

David P. Byrne, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Timothy D.
McGlory.

Paul G. Summers, Attorney General & Reporter; Christine M. Lapps,
Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney
General; and Brian Holmgren, Assistant District Attorney General, for
the Appellee, State of Tennessee.                      

Judge: WITT

First Paragraph:

The petitioner appeals the Davidson County Criminal Court's denial of
post-conviction relief.  Because the record supports the rejection of
the petitioner's claims that his guilty pleas to two counts of
aggravated robbery were unknowing and the result of ineffective
assistance of trial counsel, we affirm the denial of post-conviction
relief.
