Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Shawn M. Nance, Westmoreland, Tennessee, appellant, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Bruce N. Oldham, Gallatin, Tennessee, for the appellee, Donna Nance McLucas.

Judge(s): MCBRAYER

Defendant in an unlawful detainer action filed a counterclaim against the plaintiff. Two days later, the plaintiff filed a notice of voluntary nonsuit, but the certificate of service on the notice indicated it was placed in the mail the same day that the counterclaim was filed. Based on the notice of voluntary dismissal, the trial court entered an order dismissing the action without prejudice. Defendant appeals, arguing that he should be permitted to proceed with his counterclaim. We affirm.
