19th Century Club members sue over club's demolition

Posted: Updated:

A judge granted a temporary restraining order after four members of the Nineteenth Century Club filed a lawsuit claiming full membership didn't have an opportunity to vote on sale of the structure.

On July 25 Shelby County Environmental Judge Larry Potter ruled the new owners of the club could go ahead with their plan to demolish the building.

The restraining order is contingent on the plaintiffs posting a bond of $650,000 after 10 days. The bond is designed to prevent the defendants from suffering a major loss.

The storied mansion at 1433 Union Ave. in Midtown Memphis was built in the early 1900s.
