Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Prince C. Chambliss, Jr., Assistant City Attorney, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, City of Memphis

Attorneys 2:

Clyde W. Keenan, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Bryant Jennings

Judge(s): HIGHERS

This case involves the eligibility of a Memphis police officer for automatic promotion to thirty-year Captain. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the officer. However, because the officer was a temporary employee prior to the cut-off date set forth in the automatic promotion provision, we find that he is not entitled to automatic promotion. We reverse the grant of summary judgment in favor of the officer and we grant summary judgment in favor of the City of Memphis. The case is remanded for further proceedings, as may be necessary, consistent with this opinion.
