Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Marcus Terrell Johnson, Pikeville, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter; Andre´e S. Blumstein, Solicitor General; and Eric Andrew Fuller, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Department of Correction.

Judge(s): BENNETT

An inmate in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Correction filed a petition for writ of certiorari challenging the revocation of his parole. Because the inmate failed to file his petition within the sixty-day period required by statute, the chancery court lacked jurisdiction. We, therefore, affirm the chancery court’s judgment dismissing the case.
