Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

John E. Herbison, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the Petitioner, Daniel David Eden.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel; John W. Carney, Jr., District Attorney General; and Jason C. White, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Petitioner, Daniel David Eden, appeals as of right from the Robertson County Circuit Court?s summary dismissal of his petition for post-conviction relief, wherein he alleged that he received ineffective assistance of counsel at his probation revocation hearing. The Petitioner contends that Young v. State, 101 S.W.3d 430 (Tenn. Crim. App. 2002), on which the post-conviction court relied in its summary dismissal, should be abrogated because it offends equal protection guarantees. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
