Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Elizabeth P. Pugh, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellant, G.D.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter, and Rachel E. Buckley, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Department of Children’s Services.

Judge(s): SUSANO

The Department of Children's Services filed a petition to terminate the parental rights of G.D. (Mother) to her child, C.D. (the Child). The trial court found clear and convincing evidence of one ground supporting termination. The court also found, by the same quantum of proof, that termination is in the best interest of the Child. Mother appeals. We affirm.
