Court Rules Against ‘Daughters’ In Confederate Monument Case [VIDEO]
Caddo Commission President Doug Dominick and Commissioner Lyndon Johnson talk with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the federal court dismissing the lawsuit by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, filed in hopes of stopping the removal of the Confederate monument from the Caddo Parish Courthouse grounds.
From the Shreveport Times:
U.S. District Judge Robert G. James granted a parish commission request for a summary judgment to dismiss claims made by the United Daughters of the Confederacy's Shreveport chapter.
The United Daughters filed suit after the parish commission...ordered the monument's removal. Removal of Confederate monuments has prompted conflict in many communities across the South, including last year in New Orleans.
