Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

DL Rummage, Antioch, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Lewis A. Williams, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Kimberly Rummage.

Judge(s): BENNETT

This is a divorce case in which the trial court designated the mother as the primary residential parent, awarded her child support and a portion of her attorney’s fees as alimony, and awarded her retroactive child support. The father appealed, arguing the trial court erred in numerous ways. We decline to address the father’s arguments, however, and affirm the trial court’s judgment because the father’s brief does not comply with the requirements of Tennessee Rule of Appellate Procedure 27(a) or Court of Appeals Rule 6. We grant the mother’s request for frivolous appeal damages pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 27-1-122.
