Posted by: Karen Belcher on May 16, 2018

Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Kenneth S. Williams, and Cynthia A. Wilson, Cookeville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dana Looper.

Attorneys 2:

Daniel H. Rader, IV, Cookeville, Tennessee, for the appellee, City of Algood.

Judge(s): STAFFORD

Former police officer appeals the denial of her petition for a writ of certiorari and the denial of her motion for relief from a final judgment related to the termination of her employment. Here, the evidence was undisputed that the former police officer neglected her duties, failed to follow the directive of a “superior” and was repeatedly informed about various instances of misconduct. As such, the city administrator’s decision to uphold Appellant’s dismissal was supported by material evidence and was neither arbitrary, illegal, nor capricious.
