Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

J. Jeffrey Lee, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Ruby Blackmon

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter, William E. Young, Solicitor General, Derek C. Jumper, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development

Judge(s): HIGHERS

Appellant’s claim for unemployment benefits was denied based upon a finding of workrelated misconduct. Appellant sought review in the chancery court, which upheld the decision of the Commissioner’s Designee. On appeal to this Court, Appellant claims that the chancery court erred in denying her request for a continuance and in affirming the decision of the Commissioner’s Designee without considering the evidence which purportedly would have been introduced had a continuance been allowed. We affirm the decision of the chancery court.
