Court Grants Review in 5 Cases

The Tennessee Supreme Court has granted review in five new cases, the most recent Raybin-Perkey Hot List reports. The two civil cases concern modification of grandparent visitation and an interpretation of the teachers’ tenure act. The criminal appeals address the consequences of the state’s failure to preserve evidence, a potential violation of the Interstate Agreement on Detainers and a sufficiency of evidence review of a conviction for tampering with evidence.
