This is an appeal from a three-judge court decision sustaining the constitutionality of a Tennessee pre-judgement wage-garnishment statute against a claim that it failed to provide for notice and a hearing prior to the garnishment. The statute permits wage garnishments, as a means of obtaining in rem jurisdiction where efforts to obtain in personam jurisdiction over a defendant fail.
