Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Eli Tom Orr, Pollock, Louisana, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; William E. Young, Solicitor General; and Benjamin A. Whitehouse, Assistant Attorney General; for the appellee, State of Tennessee, Department of Safety.

Judge(s): BENNETT

A person whose property was seized, and subsequently forfeited, pursuant to a drug arrest challenges the actions of the Department of Safety. In light of the nine-year delay in the filing of a petition for review, we find no error in the trial court’s dismissal of the action.
