Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Gerald T. Eidson, Surgoinsville, Tennessee, for the appellant W.J.N.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter, and Mary Byrd Ferrara, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Department of Children=s Services.

Judge(s): SUSANO

This is a termination of parental rights case. The Department of Children’s Services filed a petition to terminate the parental rights of W.J.N. (Father) with respect to J.M.M. (the Child). The trial court found clear and convincing evidence of five grounds warranting termination. The court found the same quantum of evidence reflecting that termination is in the best interest of the Child. Father appeals. We affirm.
