Attorneys 2:

Bruce N. Oldham, Gallatin, Tennessee, for the appellee, Donna Nance McLucas.

Judge(s): GIBSON

This appeal arises from a detainer action originally filed by a landlord against a tenant in general sessions court. The general sessions court entered judgment by default against the tenant for $25,000. The tenant filed a notice of appeal to circuit court, along with a pauper’s oath and affidavit of indigency. The circuit court found that the tenant failed to properly perfect the appeal and dismissed the appeal. The tenant appeals. We reverse and remand for further proceedings.
