Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Donald Earl Johnson, Memphis, Tennessee, pro se

Attorneys 2:

Lewis W. Lyons, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Calvary Colony

Judge(s): HIGHERS

Plaintiff filed a personal injury lawsuit in the General Sessions Court. Following a trial, judgment was entered in favor of Defendant. Plaintiff then attempted to raise his claim in Circuit Court, but the Circuit Court dismissed his claim on the basis of res judicata, finding no evidence that he had appealed the adverse General Sessions judgment to Circuit Court. Plaintiff then filed a Notice of Appeal to this Court. Because Plaintiff’s Notice of Appeal to this Court is untimely, the appeal is dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
