Herbert H. Slatery, III, Attorney General and Reporter, Andre´e Sophia Blumstein, Solicitor General, and Timothy R. Simonds, Assistant Attorney General, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance.

Judge(s): GOLDIN

This appeal involves the decision of the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (the “Commissioner”) to impose a civil fine and revoke the license of insurance agent Charles E. Cunningham (“Cunningham”), after concluding that Cunningham committed six (6) violations of applicable statutes in connection with his insurance practice. Cunningham filed a petition for review in the Chancery Court for Davidson County challenging the sufficiency of the evidence relied on by the Commissioner. The trial court found that the record supported the Commissioner’s decision and choice of penalty. Cunningham appealed to this Court. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.
