The Sons of Confederate Veterans announced today that it will appeal a Davidson County chancellor’s ruling that the city of Memphis did not break any laws when it sold public parks containing Confederate statues to a private entity, which then removed the monuments. The Commercial Appeal reports that the appeal will keep in place an injunction that prevents the relocation of the statues of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and President Jefferson Davis. City Attorney Bruce McMullan said he expects to fight the case all the way to the Tennessee Supreme Court.
