The United Daughters of the Confederacy have filed a motion asking a federal judge to reconsider a July ruling that cleared the way for the Confederate statue at the Caddo Parish Courthouse be moved.
On Oct. 19, 2017, the Caddo Commission voted to move the statue, after more than a year of controversy.
After the 7-5 vote, the UDC filed suit, claiming the statue and the land upon which it stands, belonged to them.
But on July 25, U.S. District Judge Robert James dismissed the case, meaning removal plans could go forward.
Today, however, the UDC filed a Motion to Reconsider, asking James to revisit the issue.
