Grace E. Daniell, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Frank Ray Baggett.

Attorneys 2:

Linda B. Hall, Soddy Daisy, Tennessee, and William A. Harris, III, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellee, Anne Marie Baggett.

Judge(s): SUSANO

This is the divorce case of Frank Ray Baggett (“Husband”) and Anne Marie Baggett (“Wife”). After eight years of marriage, Wife sued Husband for divorce. The following year, Husband sued Wife for wrongfully excluding him from A&F Computers, a computer sales and repair business. Husband sought his alleged share of the profits from the business, damages, and dissolution of the claimed partnership. By agreement, the two cases were consolidated for trial. The parties stipulated that grounds for divorce exist and the trial court decreed a divorce. Following the hearing, the court classified, valued, and divided the parties’ property. The court determined that A&F was a sole proprietorship and awarded it to Wife. On appeal, Husband challenges the determination and disposition of A&F and the overall property division. He argues that the court’s division is not equitable. We affirm.
