Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Chadwick Wyatt Jackson, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Michael Wayne Davis.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Jonathan H. Wardle, Assistant Attorney General; Glenn Funk, District Attorney General; and J. Wesley King, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): HOLLOWAY

Michael Wayne Davis (“the Petitioner”) appeals from the dismissal of his untimely filed petition for post-conviction relief. The Petitioner argues that principles of due process require tolling the statute of limitations to file his petition. Because the record does not justify tolling the statute of limitations, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.
