Judge Dismisses Case to Keep Confederate Monument at Caddo Parish Courthouse
On Monday, August 27, 2018, Judge Robert James of Monroe ruled that a group trying to prevent the removal of a Confederate monument did not prove it had any private property interest in the land the monument is on. This was one of the groups primary arguments as to why the monument could not be removed.
The lawsuit was brought forth by the Shreveport chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Members of the group wanted to keep the monument outside the Caddo Parish Courthouse.
The group plans to now go to the 5th circuit court of appeals in New Orleans.
