Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Edward Thomas Autry, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellant, Elizabeth Bozeman Atchley.

Attorneys 2:

John Kevin Walsh and Tricia M.Y. Tweel, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellee, Carol Gish.

Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

Appellant appeals the trial court’s determination that settlor’s holographic notations on her trust agreement did not operate to modify the original trust. Specifically, the trial court held that settlor neither satisfied the requirements for modification of the trust as set out in the trust agreement, nor manifested a clear intent to amend the trust under Tennessee Code Annotated Section 35-15-602(c)(2)(B). Discerning no error, we affirm.
