Case No. 20010109-CA

June 21, 2001 2001 UT App 194 -----

Fourth District, Orem Department
The Honorable John C. Backlund

Milton Christensen, Provo, Appellant Pro Se
Jay V. Barney, Salt Lake City, for Appellee


Before Judges Greenwood, Jackson, and Davis.


Appellant asks us to overturn the judgment entered in favor of appellee, but fails to meet his burden of providing an adequate record on appeal. See Call v. City of West Jordan, 788 P.2d 1049, 1052 (Utah Ct. App. 1990) (stating appellant has burden of providing reviewing court with adequate record on appeal to prove his allegations). In particular, appellant has not provided us with a transcript of the trial court proceedings. Without an adequate record, we must assume there was a proper legal and factual basis for the trial court's decision. SeeState v. Rawlings, 829 P.2d 150, 152-53 (Utah Ct. App. 1992) (affirming trial court's order because "[i]n the absence of an adequate record on appeal, we cannot address the issues raised and presume the correctness of the disposition made by the trial court").

The trial court is affirmed.
