Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Carol M. Ballard and Bill W. Pemerton, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Sonnia Elizabeth Babcock.

Attorneys 2:

Sandra J. Bott, Chattanooga, Tennessee and Justin G. Woodward, Ringgold, Georgia, for the appellee, William Hunter Babcock.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

A married couple entered into a business partnership prior to their marriage. This is a consolidated appeal from the parties’ divorce action and their partnership dissolution action. We affirm the trial court’s decision to adjudicate the partnership dissolution action and the divorce action separately, based on Wife’s failure to raise any argument on this issue in the trial court. With regard to the remaining issues, however, we vacate the judgment of the trial court and remand for findings of fact and conclusions of law pursuant to Rule 52.01 of the Tennessee Rules of Civil Procedure.
