Disabled Group Sues Over New Arena: A group of disabled veterans and four of its members have filed a suit in federal district court claiming that the new FedEx Forum in Memphis fails to comply with the American with Disabilities Act.

Instead, the FedEx Forum is designed with wheelchair seating positioned on removable platforms. The arena is scheduled to open in the fall.
