Parish motion for summary judgment in Confederate monument case upheld


PARISH MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT IN CONFEDERATE MONUMENT CASE UPHELD 

Today the United States 5th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the US District Court for the Western District of Louisiana’s ruling granting the Parish’s Motion for Summary Judgement. The 5th Circuit Court dismissed all claims of the United Daughters of Confederacy with prejudice.  The ruling was issued Wednesday afternoon by a three judge panel of the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

“For essentially the same reasons and reasoning set forth by the district court in its July 25, 2018 Memorandum Ruling, we affirm its Judgment of even date, dismissing all claims of the UDC with prejudice and its cost,” said Judge Jacques L. Weiner, writing on behalf of the three judge panel.

“The Parish is pleased that we have confirmation to decide whether the Confederate monument can remain on the Courthouse grounds,” said Donna Frazier, Parish Attorney.
