Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Dustin P. Click, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Windie P.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Attorney General and Reporter, and Alexander S. Rieger, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee, Department of Children’s Services.

Judge(s): BENNETT

Mother’s and Father’s parental rights to four children were terminated based on findings that they committed severe child abuse upon a sibling and that the best interests of the remaining four children (the parents’ rights to the two severely abused children having been previously surrendered) required termination of their rights. Parents appealed, challenging only the best interest finding. We affirm.
