Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kenneth E. Diggs, Memphis, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Lauren Paxton Roberts, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellees, Bank of America, N.A. and Bank of America Corporation.

John R. Wingo and Lauren Paxton Roberts, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellees, EMC Mortgage Corporation and J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

This appeal results from the trial court’s dismissal of a complaint on the basis of res judicata. However, in his appellate brief, the Appellant fails to raise as an issue the trial court's application of the doctrine of res judicata, or the resulting dismissal. Because the Appellant’s brief fails to raise and argue the dispositive issue in this case and does not otherwise comply with the requirements of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure, we decline to address the merits of the case and dismiss the appeal.
