Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Phillip Leon Davidson, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Sandi D. Jackson.

Attorneys 2:

Debra L. Dishmon, Lebanon, Tennessee, for the appellee, Mitchell B. Lanphere.

Judge(s): BENNETT

In a previous appeal, this court vacated and remanded the trial court’s order dismissing a petition for an order of protection based upon the trial court’s failure to make findings of fact and conclusions of law as required by Tenn. R. Civ. P. 41.02. On remand, the trial court issued an order making the requisite findings of fact and conclusions of law and again dismissed the petition. On appeal, the petitioner argues that the trial court applied an incorrect standard of proof and thereby abused its discretion. We find no merit in this argument. Therefore, we affirm the decision of the trial court.
