Highlights from Current Issue

 The Tennessee Supreme Court held that new rules apply retroactively to cases pending on direct review but do so subject to other jurisprudential concepts, such as appellate review preservation requirements and the plain error doctrine. The Defendant established his entitlement to relief under the plain error doctrine, so Defendant’s convictions under the criminal gang offense statute were vacated. The Court remanded to the trial court for resentencing in accordance with the sentencing classification ranges established by the specific statutes creating the offenses, without any classification or sentence enhancement pursuant to the criminal gang offense statute.

• Under TRAP Rule 54.02, an order of final judgement is not appropriate unless it disposes of an entire claim or is dispositive with respect to a party.
