Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kelsy Austin Miller, Cookeville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Gerald Freeburg.

Attorneys 2:

Kevin D. Poore, Crossville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Phillip Turner.

Judge(s): SWINEY

This appeal arises from a child support matter. Gerald Freeburg (“Freeburg”), continuing in place of his adult daughter who died during the pendency of these proceedings, pursued a child support claim of his daughter against Phillip Turner (“Turner”) in the Chancery Court for Cumberland County (“the Trial Court”). Freeburg submitted what purportedly was an order from an Oklahoma court reflecting Turner’s child support arrearage. The Trial Court held that the purported order from Oklahoma did not constitute a court order and dismissed the matter. Freeburg timely appealed. We affirm the judgment of the Trial Court.
