Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Joshua Brian Dougan, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Barry Walker.

Attorneys 2:

Lewis Latane Cobb, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellee, City of Jackson, Tennessee.

Judge(s): GIBSON

This appeal involves an allegedly unsafe building in the City of Jackson. After a hearing, the City of Jackson’s environmental court ordered the property owner to demolish the building. The property owner appealed to circuit court. After another hearing, the circuit court declared the property a public nuisance and also ordered it demolished. The property owner appeals. He argues that the City of Jackson failed to follow the correct procedures under the city code, and therefore, he should not be required to demolish the structure. Discerning no merit in this assertion, we affirm.
