Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Roger Elliott, Church Hill, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

William E. Phillips, Rogersville, Tennessee, for the appellee, City of Church Hill, Tennessee.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

Because defendant was charged and found guilty of violating a state statute, rather than a municipal ordinance, we conclude that we are without subject matter jurisdiction to consider this appeal. Therefore, we must transfer this case to the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals in accordance with Rule 17 of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure for further adjudication.
