Fate of 19th Century Club delayed 2 weeks

Posted: Updated:

A final ruling in the fate of the old Nineteenth Century Club house will be delayed another two weeks.

Despite objection from the defense attorney Web Brewer, Shelby County Environmental Court Judge Larry Potter ruled in favor of several groups who want to protect the once illustrious Union Avenue landmark from demolition.

Judge Potter allowed a two week investigation into whether or not the sale of the historic property was done correctly.
"It gives us the time that we asked for to investigate whether there's merit to a lawsuit and if so bring it and if not, they can go forward with that," Brewer said.

Under the Nineteenth Century Club's law, members should have had the opportunity to vote on the what to do with the historic landmark but did not.

The parties will be back in environmental court Wednesday, July 24.
