Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Pamela R. O'Dwyer, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the appellant, Sheila Peterson.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andre´e Blumstein, Solicitor General; and Kathryn A. Baker, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Department of Human Services.

Judge(s): BENNETT

Wife challenges the trial court's decision authorizing the Department of Human Services to take her husband into protective custody pursuant to the Adult Protection Act. Because, after the trial court's decision, the adult taken into protective custody was released from DHS custody and later died, we have determined that this appeal is moot.
