Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Austin Davis, Nashville, Tennessee, Pro se.

Daisy Davis, Nashville, Tennessee, Pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Autumn L. Gentry, Kelly M. Telfeyan, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellees, Dale Lewelling, and Covenant Presbyterian Church of Nashville.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

Plaintiffs appeal the trial court’s ruling: (1) dismissing their claims against a church; (2) dismissing the plaintiff-daughter’s claim against the remaining individual defendant for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted; and (3) granting the remaining individual defendant’s motion for summary judgment as to the plaintiff-father’s claim of assault. With regard to the dismissal of the claims against the church, we conclude that Appellants’ notice of appeal was untimely, and we therefore dismiss their appeal concerning the claims against the church for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. We dismiss the remainder of Appellants’ appeal because of profound deficiencies in Appellants’ brief to this Court.
