The family of Nathan Bedford Forrest and the Sons of Confederate Veterans filed suit Wednesday against the city of Memphis for its role in removing three Confederate statues last month, The Commercial Appeal reports. The petition accuses the city and the nonprofit Memphis Greenspace of violating state laws, including the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act, laws against misconduct by elected officials and laws prohibiting the desecration of grave sites.
