Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

David McKinney, Assistant County Attorney, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Shelby County, Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

Kathleen Laird Caldwell, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Thomas L. Wenzler, Sr.

Judge(s): GIBSON

This case involves judicial review of a decision of the Shelby County Civil Service Merit Board. The appellee was terminated from his employment with the Shelby County government due to an alleged violation of a conflict of interest policy. After a two-day hearing, the Civil Service Merit Board upheld the employee?s termination. The employee sought judicial review in chancery court. After reviewing the record, the chancellor found no substantial and material evidence to support the termination of the employee and ordered him reinstated with backpay and benefits. The County appeals. Discerning no error, we affirm the decision of the chancery court.
