Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Drayton D. Berkley, Memphis, Tennessee, for the appellants, Letitia Robertson, and Roderick Robertson.

Edmund S. Sauer and Brian R. Epling, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, U. S. Bank National Association.

Judge(s): GOLDIN

This is an unlawful detainer case. U.S. Bank initiated an action against Letitia and Roderick Robertson in the general sessions court seeking possession of a residential property it had purchased at a foreclosure sale after the Robertsons defaulted on their home loan. The general sessions court issued U.S. Bank a writ of possession, and the Robertsons appealed to the circuit court. The circuit court granted U.S. Bank’s motion for summary judgment and writ of possession. The Robertsons appealed to this Court, arguing that the circuit court lacked subject matter jurisdiction over the unlawful detainer claim. Because we have concluded that the circuit court had subject matter jurisdiction, we affirm.
