Judge In Tennessee Blocks Effort To Put Graceland Up For Sale

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A judge has blocked the auction of Graceland by a company that claimed his estate failed to repay a loan that used the property as collateral.

Shelby County Chancellor JoeDae Jenkins issued a temporary injunction against the proposed auction during a hearing Wednesday.

A public notice for a foreclosure sale of the 13-acre estate in Memphis posted earlier in May said the trust that controls the Graceland museum owes $3.8 million after failing to repay a 2018 loan.

Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough had filed a lawsuit.

Keough inherited the trust and ownership of the home after the death of her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, last year.
