Virginia Judge Blocks Plan To Remove Statue Of Robert E. Lee
JUDGE BLOCKS STATUE REMOVAL.
A judge in Richmond, Va., has issued a temporary injunction blocking removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
Until a lawsuit seeking to halt the removal can be heard.
Done amid nationwide protests calling for an end to police brutality against African Americans following the killing of George Floyd, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam last week ordered the statue removed “as soon as possible” and placed in storage.
But on Monday, Judge Bradley B. Cavedo of Richmond Circuit Court issued the 10-day injunction.
Citing a lawsuit filed by William C. Gregory, who claims Virginia promised to “faithfully guard” and “affectionately protect” the statue when the land it is located on was annexed by the state in 1890.
DAWG SAYS: THEY WILL PROBABLY REMOVE IT ANYWAY-WE DO NOT SEEM TO HAVE A RULE OF LAW ANYMORE.
