Posted by: Landry Butler on Aug 26, 2016

Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Mark Randall Sellers, Cleveland, Tennessee, for the appellant, Lee Anne Frazier.

Attorneys 2:

Howard L. Upchurch, Pikeville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Arron Wesley Frazier.

Judge(s): SUSANO

This is an interlocutory appeal as of right, pursuant to Rule 10B of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Tennessee, from the denial of a motion for recusal filed by Lee Anne Frazier (Wife) in the parties' divorce proceedings. Having reviewed the petition for recusal appeal filed by Wife, as well as the answer in opposition filed by Arron Wesley Frazier (Husband), we conclude that the Trial Court should have granted the motion because the unique circumstances of this case create an appearance of bias on the part of the Trial Court Judge that required his recusal. We therefore reverse the order of the Trial Court and remand the case for reassignment to a different judge.
