Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Robert E. Lee Davies, Franklin, Tennessee, (on appeal only) for the appellant, John Arthur Norman IV.

Attorneys 2:

Lorraine Wade, Nashville, Tennessee, (on appeal only) for the appellee, Dinah Bostic Norman.

Judge(s): MCBRAYER

This case arises out of the demise of a long-term marriage. The trial court declared the parties divorced, equitably divided the marital estate, and awarded the wife alimony in solido, rehabilitative alimony, and alimony in futuro. On appeal, the husband raises many issues, including whether the doctrine of unclean hands should bar wife from receiving an award of alimony in solido, whether the court’s division of the marital estate was inequitable, and whether the court’s alimony awards were based on a clearly erroneous assessment of the evidence. Finding no abuse of discretion, we affirm the trial court’s decision in all respects.
