No Decision Issued In Statue Hearing

(Richmond)- A judge is holding off on a decision on the fate of the Robert E. Lee monument.  A 30-day temporary injunction was issued against the statue’s removal, although a decision may come much earlier.  The order came after Judge Reilly Marchant heard arguments from attorney general Mark Herring and the lawyer for a descendant of signatories for the statue.  The lawyer claims the state is supposed to keep the monument perpetually sacred, according to language in the deed.
