Posted by: Tanja Trezise on May 1, 2014

Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Margaret Renee Wright, Clarksville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Roger Kreis White, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Patricia Dunlap.

Judge(s): CLEMENT

The plaintiff, Margaret Renee Wright, has appealed from the dismissal of her action for damages arising out of an automobile accident. Upon review of the record, this court determined that neither Ms. Wright’s Tenn. R. Civ. P. 59 motion nor her notice of appeal were timely filed. We thus ordered Ms. Wright to show cause why her appeal should not be dismissed. Ms. Wright’s trial counsel has filed a response asserting that both Ms. Wright’s Tenn. R. Civ. P. 59 motion and her notice of appeal were in fact timely filed. It appears from Ms. Wright’s response that certain documents were omitted from the record. Nevertheless, we still conclude that Ms. Wright’s Tenn. R. Civ. P.59 motion was untimely and thus dismiss the appeal.
