Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Ginger Wilson Buchanan, Cleveland, Tennessee, for the appellants, John Darrell Vance, Nancy Ann Ferrara, Wendy Vance Knott, and William Landon Vance.

Attorneys 2:

O. E. Schow, IV, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Kimberly B. Jenkins.

Amy Bingham, Loudon, Tennessee, appellee, pro se.

Barry N. Blanton, Lenoir City, Tennessee, appellee, pro se.

Judge(s): McCLARTY

This is an appeal from an order in a will-construction suit regarding whether certain heirs to the Estate of Wanda Joyce Watkins (“Heirs”), appellants in this appeal, are entitled to inherit under the residuary clause of the Decedent’s will. Because the order appealed from does not resolve the issue of the amount of attorney’s fees awarded to the Executrix, Kimberly B. Jenkins (“Executrix”), in connection with the filing of the petition for construction of the will, we lack jurisdiction to consider this appeal.
