MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A Memphis shopping center is at the center of a lawsuit.

Owners of the Balmoral Shopping Center at Quince and Ridgeway filed a lawsuit in November against the City of Memphis and the Shelby County Board of Education.

The lawsuit claims neither the city nor Shelby County Schools (SCS) has done enough to control students and vehicle traffic from neighboring Ridgeway High School.

The suit says students are being dropped off and picked up at the shopping center, which is just one-tenth of a mile from the school, creating problems for business owners and patrons.

Balmoral is seeking a permanent injunction and $5 million in damages.

We reached out to SCS for a statement on the lawsuit:

“SCS is aware of the lawsuit, but we do not comment on pending litigation as part of District protocol.”
