Margaret Smith, Memphis, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Darrell L. West, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, HSBC Mortgage Services, Inc.

Bruce L. Feldbaum and Mark Cantora, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Gregory Griffin.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

This is an appeal from a detainer warrant action originally filed in the general sessions court by the purchaser of residential property at a foreclosure sale. The defendant in the detainer action appealed the general sessions judgment to circuit court and filed a third party complaint against the mortgage company. The trial granted the mortgage company?s motion to dismiss. After a trial de novo, the trial court awarded the purchaser of the property possession of the premises. Because Appellant failed to comply with Rules 24 and 27 of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure and Rule 6 of the Rules of the Court of Appeals of Tennessee, we dismiss this appeal.
