Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jerry E. Farmer, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellant, H. T. Beckham.

Attorneys 2:

Irene R. Haude, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, John A. Brubaker.

Judge(s): MCBRAYER

A dispute arose between the purchaser of real property and a prior owner over certain personalty, including equipment and motor vehicles, left on the real property. After the prior owner removed one item of personalty and dumped tree waste on the real property, the purchaser filed suit against the prior owner seeking, among other things, injunctive relief. Following a hearing, the trial court granted the requested injunctive relief and concluded that the personalty that remained on the real property was owned by the purchaser. The prior owner of the real property appeals the trial court's decision that the personalty remaining on the real property was abandoned. Because the trial court's order does not satisfy the requirements of Rule 52.01 of the Tennessee Rules of Civil Procedure, we vacate the judgment and remand for further proceedings.
