Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Richard A. Sedgley, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kenneth A. Ritchie.

Attorneys 2:

Bernard E. Bernstein, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Elizabeth Widmaier Pew Ritchie.

Judge(s): SWINEY

After twenty-five years of marriage, Kenneth A. Ritchie (“Husband”) sued Elizabeth Widmaier Pew Ritchie (“Wife”) for divorce. After a trial, the Trial Court entered its Judgment for Divorce, which inter alia, awarded Wife a divorce, distributed the marital assets and debts, and awarded Wife alimony in solido. Husband appeals to this Court raising an issue about the alimony in solido. Wife raises an issue about the Trial Court’s refusal to award her attorney’s fees, and also requests an award of attorney’s fees on appeal. We affirm, and decline to award attorney’s fees on appeal.
