Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Randy Starkey, Kingston Springs, Tennessee, Respondent/Appellant, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

R. Spencer Hamlin and Eric K. Lockert, Ashland City, Tennessee, for the Petitioner/Appellee, Minor Miracle Productions, LLC, and David L. Richards

Judge(s): KIRBY

This is the second appeal in this case. In the first appeal, this Court affirmed the trial court’s enrollment of a foreign judgment acquired by the petitioners against the respondent in Idaho, and the case was remanded for enforcement proceedings. On remand, the respondent refused to comply with the Idaho judgment, so the petitioners filed a motion for contempt and for an order to compel compliance with the judgment. The respondent did not attend the hearing. The trial court found the respondent to be in contempt of court for refusing to comply with the Idaho judgment. The respondent now appeals. We dismiss the appeal, because the issues raised on appeal were not first raised in the trial court, and the respondent did not comply with either Rule 24(c) or Rule 27 of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure.
