SUPREME COURT OF TENNESSEE SUPREME COURT DISCRETIONARY APPEALS Court:TSC - Rules http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TSC_Rules/certlist_0610.wpd
JOHN FOSTER, et al. v. LARRY GLENN Court:TCA Attorneys: Larry Glenn, Appellant, Pro Se Sharon Frankenberg, Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Appellees, John Foster and Mamosa Foster Judge: GODDARD First Paragraph: The origin of this appeal was a detainer warrant filed in the General Sessions Court by John Foster and Mamosa Foster against Larry Glenn seeking possession of property occupied by Mr. Glenn pursuant to an instrument styled "AGREEMENT FOR DEED." Mr. Glenn filed what he styles a counter-complaint seeking damages for breach of contract and prevailed in the General Sessions Court. Upon appeal the Circuit Court found in favor of the Fosters, but awarded Mr. Glenn a judgment as to insurance proceeds received by the Fosters as a result of a truck striking the house in question. Mr. Glenn appeals the judgment of the Trial Court. We affirm. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCA/fosterj.wpd

Lapps, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Brian Holmgren, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee. Judge: WITT First Paragraph: The petitioner appeals the Davidson County Criminal Court's denial of post-conviction relief. Because the record supports the rejection of the petitioner's claims that his guilty pleas to two counts of aggravated robbery were unknowing and the result of ineffective assistance of trial counsel, we affirm the denial of post-conviction relief. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCCA/mcgloryt.wpd
