CINCINNATI (AP) - The foundation that owned the now-demolished home of the man who invented Ivory soap is suing the city of Cincinnati in the latest legal battle connected to the historic property.

The Greenacres Foundation lawsuit alleges the city wrongly delayed the organization’s efforts to demolish the home. The suit filed last week asks that Cincinnati be required to pay the foundation’s costs for a legal fight that lasted several years before the 2013 demolition.

The interim city solicitor tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (https://cin.ci/1rek9Tb ) he’ll ask the court to dismiss the suit. He says he doesn’t understand the motive for the lawsuit because the home has been destroyed.

James N. Gamble, the son of a Procter & Gamble founder, lived in the 13-room Victorian mansion from 1875 until he died in 1932.
