Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Barrett T. Painter, Cleveland, Tennessee, for the appellant, Thomas L. Lane.

Attorneys 2:

Joshua H. Jenne, Cleveland, Tennessee, for the appellee, Wanda S. Lane.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

This post-divorce appeal concerns the classification and division of property, namely a products liability settlement and a pension plan. Following the grant of the parties’ request for divorce, the trial court classified the proceeds of the settlement and the portion of the pension earned during the marriage as marital property. The court held that husband had dissipated the settlement proceeds without wife’s knowledge or consent. The court awarded husband the pension but awarded wife a judgment of $27,520.97 to equalize the division. Husband appeals. We affirm the decision of the trial court.
