NASHVILLE, Tenn (AP/WMOT) — The state of Tennessee is appealing an appeals court ruling in a dispute over Fisk University's effort to generate cash from an art collection donated to the school by the late painter Georgia O'Keeffe.
O'Keeffe stipulated that the collection could not be sold or broken up. But Fisk has argued it needs to complete a $30 million deal to sell a 50 percent stake in the collection to the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Ark.

NASHVILLE, Tenn (AP) - The State Supreme Court will decide whether the Nashville's sheriff's office violated the Metro Charter when it entered into an agreement with federal immigration authorities.
