Hollon v. Hollon
Mississippi Supreme Court
784 So. 2d 943 (2001)
Tim Hollon and Beth Hollon were married and had a child named Zach. Tim was a police officer whose work schedule varied. Beth worked a standard 35-hour week in the apartment complex in which the Hollons lived. The Hollons’ marriage deteriorated, and Tim moved out of the marital home. Beth continued to raise Zach. Beth took in a female roommate, and Tim alleged that Beth was engaged in a homosexual relationship with the roommate. At the divorce trial, Beth denied that the relationship with the roommate was sexual, but other testimony pointed to a sexual relationship. Zach was three years old when the trial started. The Chancery Court of Jackson County found that relocation to Tim’s care would be in Zach’s best interests. The trial court placed significant emphasis on Beth’s alleged homosexual relationship. Beth appealed.
