Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Darrell J. O’Neal, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Donald Robinson.

Attorneys 2:

Jonathan C. Hancock and Whitney M. Harmon, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority.

Judge(s): FARMER

Petitioner, a police officer for the Memphis Airport Police Department (“MAPD”), was terminated by the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority (“MSCAA”) for violating several of its policies and procedures. On appeal to this Court, Petitioner argues that MSCAA’s policies, and its application of those policies, violated his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination. Petitioner also argues that MSCAA violated his equal protection rights by applying its policies and procedures in a disparate fashion. After throughly reviewing the record, we find no basis for Petitioner’s claims. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
