Federal Court Deadlines Set In Flag Case

A federal judge is ordering attorneys to file arguments over whether courts have authority to decide if Mississippi should remove the Confederate Battle Emblem from the state flag. A March 21 deadline has been set for briefs by Attorney General Jim Hood who is defending the state and Carlos Moore, a private attorney who sued the state seeking to have the flag declared an unconstitutional vestige of slavery. While local momentum to change the flag hasn’t made much progress, Moore is hoping the federal government will weigh in on the issue.
