Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Michael J. Stanuszek, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Bridgetta M.

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 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 Bridgetta M. (“Mother”) to her minor children Greg S. and Kaedince M. (“the Children”). The Juvenile Court terminated Mother’s parental rights to the Children on the grounds of wanton disregard and severe abuse. Mother appeals to this Court arguing only that it is not in the Children’s best interest for Mother’s parental rights to be terminated. We affirm the judgment of the Juvenile Court.
