Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Dewone Alexander, Henning, Tennessee, pro se

Attorneys 2:

James I. Pentecost, Brittani C. Kendrick, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, Gloria Lang

Judge(s): HIGHERS

A prison inmate filed a petition for writ of certiorari in the chancery court, seeking review of a prison disciplinary action. Numerous respondents were listed in the complaint, and one respondent filed a motion to dismiss. The trial court granted the respondent’s motion to dismiss because, among other things, the petition was not verified or sworn, and it did not state that it was the first application for the writ. The petitioner appeals. We dismiss the appeal for lack of a final judgment.
