Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Katheryn K. Murray, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Greg S.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter, and, Rebekah A. Baker, Senior Counsel, for the appellee, the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services.

Judge(s): SWINEY

This appeal concerns the termination of a father’s parental rights. The Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (“DCS”) filed a petition in the Juvenile Court for Knox County (“the Juvenile Court”) seeking to terminate the parental rights of Greg S. (“Father”) to his minor child Greg S., Jr. (“the Child”).1 The Juvenile Court terminated Father’s parental rights to the Child on the ground of substantial noncompliance with the permanency plan. Father appeals to this Court arguing only that it is not in the Child’s best interest for Father’s parental rights to be terminated. We affirm the judgment of the Juvenile Court.
