 Nashville, Tenn.; Public nuisance lawsuit filed against Kurdish gang

Nashville, Tenn. (AP). Nashville police say they have filed the state's first public nuisance lawsuit against a street gang made up of Kurdish refugees.

15gangs.xlarge1_josh_anderson_nytimes.jpgThe lawsuit filed Tuesday names the Kurdish Pride Gang and 24 individuals accused of being members. It seeks to prohibit them from meeting anywhere within a 1.43-square-mile area south of downtown Nashville that includes city parks, an elementary school and neighborhoods.

"This is the first time in the state of Tennessee that a local government has sought to have a street gang and a group of its alleged members declared a public nuisance," said Mayor Karl Dean.

  The lawsuit is based on the addition of criminal gang activity to the state's public nuisance law in 2009. Typically the public nuisance law has been used by cities and local governments to shut down businesses associated with crimes like prostitution and illegal alcohol sales or consumption.

Dean and members of the city police department announced the lawsuit during a press conference at Paragon Mills Park, which is one of two city parks within the area that police want declared a "safe zone."
