Posted by: Chandra Williams on Jul 16, 2015

Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Douglas M. Mathis, Nashville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; and Brent C. Cherry, Senior Counsel, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): GLENN

The petitioner, Douglas M. Mathis, appeals the summary dismissal of his second petition for writ of habeas corpus. In it, he repeats the claim of his first such petition, that the trial court was without jurisdiction to conduct his trial. Because the petitioner has failed to state a cognizable claim for habeas corpus relief, we affirm the summary dismissal of the petition.
