Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robin Gunn, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Christopher W.C.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; and Jordan Scott, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee Department of Children’s Services.

Judge(s): SWINEY

The State of Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (“DCS”) filed a petition seeking to terminate the parental rights of Christopher W.C. (“Father”) to the minor child Rebecca J.R.M. (“the Child”). After a trial, the Juvenile Court entered its judgment finding and holding, inter alia, that clear and convincing evidence was proven that grounds existed to terminate Father’s parental rights to the Child pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 36-1-113 (g)(2) and (g)(9)(A), and that clear and convincing evidence was proven that it was in the Child’s best interest for Father’s parental rights to be terminated. Father appeals to this Court. We affirm the termination of Father’s parental rights to the Child.
