Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael G. Floyd, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Flora M. Hathaway

Attorneys 2:

Deborah K. Brooks, Memphis, Tennessee, for the Appellee, Aging Commission of the Mid- South

Judge(s): KIRBY

This is a conservatorship proceeding. The ward’s wife filed a petition to appoint a conservator in which she asked to be appointed as conservator for the ward. After a trial, the trial court held that the ward was disabled and in need of a conservator but appointed a public conservator instead of the wife. The trial court also set aside a transfer of real property, purportedly made by the ward prior to the filing of the conservatorship action. The wife now appeals, arguing that the trial court erred in setting aside the transfer of real property and in rejecting her request to be appointed conservator. Discerning no error, we affirm.
