Void Judgment Will Not Support An Appeal

In K.R. v. D.H., [Ms. 2061119] (Ala. Civ. App. Jan. 25, 2008), the Court of Civil Appeals dismissed an appeal for lack of jurisdiction because the trial court did not have jurisdiction over the underlying dispute.  The court held that "because a judgment entered without subject-matter jurisdiction is void . . ., and because a void judgment will not support an appeal . . . , we dismiss the appeal."
