Harold G. Walter, Memphis, Tennessee, for Defendant/Appellants, Eugene Gibson and Cheryl Gibson.

Attorneys 2:

Douglas M. Alrutz and Amber D. Floyd, Memphis, Tennessee for Plaintiff/Appellee, BancorpSouth Bank.

Judge(s): KIRBY

This appeal involves the enrollment of a foreign judgment. The plaintiff creditor sought to enroll in Tennessee a deficiency judgment obtained in Arkansas. The defendant debtors contended that the Arkansas judgment should not be given full faith and credit in Tennessee, alleging inter alia the fraud exception to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the constitution. The trial court enrolled the Arkansas judgment, and the debtors appeal. Discerning no error, we affirm.
