Legal battle over Confederate flags in Lexington takes another step in court
April 24, 2012
The ongoing legal battle over Confederate flags in Lexington takes another step in Federal Court.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans is suing the city, saying it wants to raise the controversial flag on city property. The city recently asked for the case to be thrown out.
Your Hometown News Leader has learned that last week the SCV filed a motion for that to be denied, saying it doesn’t meet the standards to do so. It also mentioned how other groups have flown flags, so why not the Confederate one.
The trial is set to start in November.
