CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The future of the Caddo Parish Confederate monument was heard by a judge Tuesday morning.
Lawyers for the Shreveport chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Caddo Commission submitted a written brief to Judge Craig Marcotte, who will in turn send them his written opinion.
Within that opinion should be a resolution from Judge Marcotte on what should happen with the monument.
There is no timetable as to when Judge Marcotte will make a decision.
Last November the United Daughters of the Confederacy requested the temporary restraining order to keep the monument from being moved.
In December, the Caddo Parish Commission approved $500,000 in funding to pay for the removal of the monument.
The Caddo Commission originally voted to remove the monument back in 2017.
