Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Venus Niner and Adrian H. Alshuler, Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Jonathan Allen Honeycutt.

Attorneys 2:

Jeffrey L. Levy, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Andrea Kay Honeycutt.

Judge(s): MCBRAYER

This case is an appeal from the grant of an order of protection under Tennessee Code Annotated § 36-3-605. While a divorce proceeding was pending in another court, wife filed a petition for an order of protection from her husband, alleging domestic abuse. The wife obtained ex parte relief, and after a hearing, the trial court granted an order of protection for forty-five days. Husband appealed, arguing the preponderance of the evidence did not support the grant of an order of protection. Because the order has expired by its own terms, we conclude this appeal is moot. We dismiss this appeal and grant wife her attorneys’ fees incurred on appeal.
