Judge Still Has Decisions To Make On Confederate Monuments

(Charlottesville)- A lawsuit over the Confederate monuments in Charlottesville remains unsettled.  A judge recently ruled two statues of Confederate generals in Charlottesville are protected by state law because they are war memorials.  The Daily Progress says the judge must still determine whether the statues violate the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment.  A lawsuit filed by The Monument Fund two years ago claims the city of Charlottesville broke the law when the council voted to remove the downtown statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas Stonewall Jackson.
