RONDAL AKERS, ET AL. v. BUCKNER-RUSH ENTERPRISES, INC., ET AL.

Court: TCA

Attorneys:

William J. Brown, Cleveland, Tennessee, for the Appellants, Rondal and Lucinda Akers, Donna Burns, and Susan Hall, Doyle Harden, Ricky Harden, Sandra Fogle, Mollie C. Denton, and Elaine Waldron.

Stuart F. James, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the Appellees T. Ray Brent Marsh, Rhames Lashae Marsh, Tri-State Crematory, and Tri-State Crematory, Inc.

Aubrey B. Harwell, Jr., Ronald G. Harris, and George H. Cate, III, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellees, Buckner-Rush Enterprises, Inc., Prime Succession of Tennessee, Inc., and Prime Succession Holding, Inc.

Judge: SWINEY

This is an appeal from three consolidated lawsuits filed against T. Ray Brent Marsh, Marsh's former business, Tri-State Crematory, and Buckner-Rush Enterprises, Inc. The plaintiffs are relatives and a girlfriend of three deceased individuals whose bodies were sent by Buckner-Rush Funeral Home to Tri-State Crematory for cremation. The bodies were not cremated and either were dumped or buried by Marsh on the Tri-State premises. The Trial Court dismissed all three lawsuits after holding that the plaintiffs did not have standing to bring any of the tort, contract, or statutory claims at issue. We affirm in part, vacate in part, and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

GORDON C. COLLINS v. BARRY L. ARNOLD, ET AL.

Court: TCA

Attorneys:

J. Randolph Bibb, Jr., Brigid M. Carpenter, G. Douglas Tackett, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellants Barry L. Arnold, et al.

William D. Leader, Jr., Joseph G. DeGaetano, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Gordon C. Collins.

Judge: COTTRELL

The plaintiff was severely injured when the automobile he was driving was struck by a car driven by an impaired driver who was killed in the collision. The plaintiff's suit named as defendants the estate of the deceased driver, the nightclub from which the driver departed immediately before the accident, and the company which provided security services to the bar. The jury declined to find the nightclub liable for serving alcoholic beverages, thereby making the only available basis for liability negligence in controlling the conduct of the deceased driver so as to prevent harm to others. The jury heard evidence that employees of the club and the security company had made efforts, albeit unsuccessful, to prevent the driver from leaving the premises in an intoxicated state. The jury found the plaintiff's damages resulted from negligence and amounted to over $1,162,000. They allocated 30% of the fault to the deceased driver, 30% to the security company, and 40% to the club's owner. The jury also awarded punitive damages of $1.5 million against the club's owner and $500,000 against the security company. The club owner appealed. Because the jury was not instructed as to the conditions for liability under an assumed, rather than imposed, duty of care as established in Section 324A of the Restatement of Torts, we must reverse the verdict and judgment thereon. For separate and independent reasons, we reverse the award of punitive damages, because the conduct of the bar's personnel in attempting to prevent its adult customer from driving while impaired did not reach the level of recklessness necessary to sustain a punitive award. Additionally, we find no error in evidentiary rulings or other procedures in the trial court that justify reversal.

Stuart F. James, Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the Appellees, T. Ray Brent Marsh, Rhames Lashae Marsh, Tri-State Crematory, and Tri-State Crematory, Inc.

Judge: SWINEY

This appeal involves one of numerous civil lawsuits filed against T. Ray Brent Marsh and his former business, Tri-State Crematory, Inc., and others. The plaintiffs in this case are the parents and siblings of Robert H. Crawford, Jr., whose body was sent to the Tri-State Crematory for cremation. The body, however, was not cremated and to this day the plaintiffs do not know what happened to their loved onesí body. The Trial Court dismissed the lawsuit after finding that the decedent's surviving spouse was the only person with standing to bring the various tort claims asserted by the plaintiffs. The decedent's sister, Teri Crawford, appeals that determination. We affirm.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. BEVERLY DIANE BEAN

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Francis W. Pryor, Jr., Jasper, Tennessee, for the appellant, Beverly Diane Bean.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; Cameron L. Hyder, Assistant Attorney General; James Michael Taylor, District Attorney General; and Steven M. Blount, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WITT

A Franklin County Circuit Court grand jury indicted the defendant, Beverly Diane Bean, of driving under the influence (DUI), third offense, a Class A misdemeanor, see T.C.A. sections 55-10-401, - 403(a)(1) (2004); DUI, see id. section 55-10-401; violating the implied consent law, see id. section 55-10-406; and reckless driving, see id. section 55-10-205. The jury convicted the defendant of DUI, count one, and reckless driving, count four. The trial court found the defendant guilty of third offense DUI, see id. section 55-10-403(a)(1), count two. The trial court sentenced the defendant to an effective sentence of 11 months and 29 days, six months to be served in the county jail and the remainder on supervised probation, and the court imposed a fine of $1,100. On appeal, the defendant argues that there was insufficient evidence to support the DUI conviction and that the trial court's sentence was excessive. We hold the evidence sufficient and uphold the sentence. However, we remand for correction of the judgments.

RODNEY BUFORD v. STATE OF TENNESSEE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Rodney Buford, Jr., Pro Se, Only, Tennessee.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; Lacy Wilbur, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. Johnson, District Attorney General; and Kathy Morante, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: SMITH

A jury convicted Petitioner of especially aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary. Petitioner's appeal to this Court was unsuccessful. Petitioner filed a pro se petition for post-conviction relief which the post-conviction court summarily dismissed for failure to state a colorable claim. The State concedes that Petitioner did state a colorable claim, and we agree. Therefore, we reverse the post- conviction court's summary dismissal and remand for further proceedings in accordance with this opinion.

KENNETH CAMPBELL v. STATE OF TENNESSEE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Kenneth Campbell, pro se, Pikeville, Tennessee.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Elizabeth B. Marney, Senior Counsel, Criminal Justice Division, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WEDEMEYER

The Petitioner, Kenneth Campbell, appeals the trial court's denial of his pro se petition for a writ of error coram nobis and, in the alternative, motion to reopen his post-conviction petition. The State has filed a motion requesting that the Court affirm the trial court's denial of relief pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals. We find that the State's motion has merit. Accordingly, the motion is granted, and the appeal is affirmed pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. KENNETH C. DAILEY, III

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

J. Carlton Drumwright, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellant, Kenneth C. Dailey, III.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Michael E. Moore, Solicitor General; Preston Shipp, Assistant Attorney General; Victor S. (Torry) Johnson, III, District Attorney General; and Pamela Sue Anderson, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WILLIAMS

The defendant, Kenneth C. Dailey, III, pled guilty to second degree murder and reserved a certified question of law regarding the admissibility of his statements of confession to the crime. In our initial review, this court concluded that the certified question was not dispositive of the case. Our supreme court held that the certified question was dispositive of the case and reversed and remanded to our court for review of the certified question on its merits. After careful review, we conclude that the evidence does not preponderate against the trial court's finding that the defendant was not in custody at the time he made his incriminating statement. We affirm the judgment from the trial court.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. DENNIS EDDINS

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Karla D. Ogle, Fayetteville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Dennis Eddins.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; Renee W. Turner, Assistant Attorney General; W. Michael McCown, District Attorney General; and Melissa Thomas and Ann Filer, Assistant District Attorneys General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WITT

The defendant, Dennis Eddins, was convicted of extortion, see T.C.A. section 39-14-112, and the trial court imposed a two-year sentence to be served as six months' incarceration followed by community corrections. In this appeal, the defendant asserts that the State engaged in prosecutorial misconduct and that the trial court erred by denying his motion for a judgment of acquittal following the close of the State's proof. Because the evidence was insufficient to support the conviction, the judgment of the trial court is reversed and the charge is dismissed.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. PAMELA SUE GOETZ

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Andrew Jackson Dearing, III, Shelbyville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Pamela Sue Goetz.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Rachel E. Willis, Assistant Attorney General; Charles Crawford, District Attorney General; and Michael D. Randles, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: MCLIN

The defendant, Pamela Sue Goetz, was indicted by a Bedford County Grand Jury for thirty counts of forgery under alternative theories of executing and passing fifteen forged checks. She pled guilty to all forgery counts and, as a result, received a total effective sentence of four years and six months to be served in confinement. On appeal, the defendant argues that the trial court erred by denying her alternative sentencing. Following our review of the parties' briefs, the record, and applicable law, we hold that the trial court did not err and affirm that court's judgments.

STATE OF TENNESSEE v. KATIA LENEE HARRIS A/K/A FUZZY

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Andrew Jackson Dearing, III, Shelbyville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Katia Lenee Harris a/k/a Fuzzy.

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Michael E. Moore, Solicitor General; Cameron L. Hyder, Assistant Attorney General; Charles F. Crawford, District Attorney General; Weakley E. Barnard, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: WEDEMEYER

The Defendant, Katia Lenee Harris a/k/a Fuzzy, pled guilty to one count of aggravated robbery. The trial court sentenced her to ten years confinement based on the application of three enhancement factors. On appeal, the Defendant contends the trial court erred when sentencing her. We conclude the trial court erred in enhancing the Defendant's sentence based on enhancement factors (1) and (10). Thus, we modify the Defendant's sentence to nine years.

Judge: OGLE

The appellant, Audra Lynn Johnson, appeals the Montgomery County Circuit Court's denial of the Motion for Return of Funds she filed in an attempt to have the Board of Probation and Parole reimburse her for probation fees she paid before this court reversed her conviction for reckless homicide.

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Assistant Attorney General; William C. Whitesell, Jr., District Attorney General; and Trevor H. Lynch, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: GLENN

The petitioner, Marshall Donnell Johnson, appeals the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief, arguing that the post-conviction court erred by finding that he received effective assistance of trial counsel and entered his guilty plea knowingly and voluntarily. Following our review, we affirm the denial of the petition.

TERRY LEWIS v. STATE OF TENNESSEE

Court: TCCA

Attorneys:

Terry Lewis, Pro Se, Clifton, Tennessee

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General & Reporter; J. Ross Dyer, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge: SMITH

This matter is before the Court upon the State's motion to dismiss or in the alternative to affirm the judgment of the trial court by memorandum opinion pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals. Petitioner has appealed the trial court's order dismissing his petition for habeas corpus relief in which Petitioner alleged that the district attorney's closing argument illegally amended the indictment; that count three of the indictment was constructively amended because the jury was allowed to convict him on a factual basis that effectively modified an element of the charged offense; and that the indictment for robbery did not cite a statute. Upon a review of the record in this case, we are persuaded that the trial court was correct in dismissing the petition for habeas corpus relief without a hearing and without appointment of counsel and that this case meets the criteria for affirmance pursuant to Rule 20, Rules of the Court of Criminal Appeals. Accordingly, the State's motion is granted, and the judgment of the trial court is affirmed.

Judge: WOODALL

Petitioner, Paul Graham Manning, was convicted of first degree pre-meditated murder and felony reckless endangerment. He appeals the trial court's denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. On appeal, Petitioner argues that he is entitled to post-conviction relief because various constitutional rights were violated before, during and after trial, and that he received ineffective assistance of counsel at all stages of the proceedings. After affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court.

Petitioner, Billy Merle Meeks, filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus, attacking his convictions for aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated robbery, especially aggravated burglary, and extortion. He was convicted in August 1990, received an effective sentence of thirty-nine (39) years after partial consecutive sentencing, and filed his habeas corpus petition in 2004. The petition was dismissed and this Court affirmed. Billy Merle Meeks v. Ricky J. Bell, Warden, No. M2005-00626- CCA-R3-HC, 2005 WL 3504665 at *1 (Tenn. Crim. App., at Nashville, Dec. 22, 2005) perm. app. denied (Tenn. May 1, 2006) (Meeks I). On petition for writ of certiorari, the United States Supreme Court granted the petition, vacated the judgment of this Court, and remanded this case for further consideration in light of Cunningham v. California, 549 U.S. _____ 127 S. Ct. 856 (2007). Counsel was appointed for Petitioner and the parties were ordered to file additional briefs in light of the remand. Following review of the record and the arguments of Petitioner and the State, we affirm the judgment of the trial court dismissing the petition for writ of habeas corpus.
