In re Joshua E.

Court of Appeals of Tennessee, Nashville

June 22, 2018

IN RE JOSHUA E., ET AL.

          Assigned on Briefs June 5, 2018

          Appeal from the Juvenile Court for Davidson County No. 2014-000434; 2014-000435 Sheila Calloway, Judge

         Tabitha B. ("Mother"), represented by counsel, appeals the May 31, 2017 order of the Juvenile Court for Davidson County ("the Trial Court"). Mother's brief on appeal fails to comply in any meaningful way with Tenn. R. App. P. 27. We, therefore, find that Mother has waived her issues on appeal.

         Tenn. R. App. P. 3 Appeal as of Right; Judgment of the Juvenile Court Affirmed Case Remanded

          Daniel Marshall, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Tabitha B.

          Laural Hemenway, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Terrance E.

          D. MICHAEL SWINEY, C.J., delivered the opinion of the court, in which W. NEAL MCBRAYER and ARNOLD B. GOLDIN, JJ., joined.

          OPINION

          D. MICHAEL SWINEY, JUDGE

         This very contentious case involves parenting issues with regard to the parties' two minor children. Mother filed a Petition for Modification of Parenting Time in May of 2016. The case was heard by a magistrate over multiple days in May and June of 2016. Terrance E. ("Father") filed a motion for a rehearing. The Trial Court then heard the case on October 28, 2016; March 9, 2017; March 30, 2017; April 24, 2017; and May 9, 2017. The Trial Court entered its order on May 31, 2017, which included detailed findings of fact and conclusions of law and the Trial Court's detailed analysis regarding each of the applicable statutory factors in light of the evidence presented. Mother appeals the May 31, 2017 order.

         Mother's brief on appeal, submitted by her attorney, fails to comply in any meaningful way with Tenn. R. App. P. 27. Rule 27 of the Tennessee Rules of Appellate Procedure specifies that an appellant's brief must contain, inter alia:

(2) A table of authorities, including cases (alphabetically arranged), statutes and other authorities cited, with references to the pages in the brief where they are cited;
(6) A statement of facts, setting forth the facts relevant to the issues presented for review with appropriate references to the record;
(7) An argument, which may be preceded by a summary of argument, setting forth:
(A) the contentions of the appellant with respect to the issues presented, and the reasons therefor, including the reasons why the contentions require appellate relief, with citations to the authorities and appropriate references to ...
