Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Donald Capparella, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Virgil Duane Parker.

Attorneys 2:

Randall D. Larramore, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for the appellee, Jill St. John-Parker.

Judge(s): BENNETT

In this divorce, the trial court's main challenge was to classify and divide corporate debentures worth over two million dollars. After considering the evidence, the trial court classified all of the debentures as marital property and awarded Wife a share equal to $450,000. After this Court granted Husband's motion to stay execution on distribution of the assets, the trial court awarded Wife temporary alimony. We have concluded that the trial court erred in its division of the debentures and in awarding attorney fees to Wife for her attorney's work regarding Husband's motion to stay execution. In all other respects, we affirm the trial court's decision.
