A hearing in this case is set for March 14, 2024, at 10:30 a.m. Vanessa Burson must appear before this Court on that date to participate in a preliminary hearing to determine whether the child is dependent and neglected and/or severely abused. The Court is located at 1600 E. 3rd Street, Chattanooga, TN 37404.
If Vanessa Burson does not come to the preliminary hearing, the state will ask the Court to allow it to proceed with the preliminary hearing in her absence. That means that the state will ask the Court to let it present proof without having Vanessa Burson present in court.
Any appeal of this Court’s final disposition of the Department’s Petition to Transfer Temporary Legal Custody and Ex Parte Order will be governed by the Rules of Juvenile Procedure and T.C.A. §37-1-159. Vanessa Burson shall have ten (10) days, excluding non-judicial days, to file an appeal.
