Judge Dismisses Lawsuit on State Flag

A federal judge dismisses a lawsuit that sought to eliminate the Mississippi flag as a state symbol.
U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves dismissed the case in a ruling Thursday saying the plaintiffs failed to show the Confederate battle emblem had caused a “cognizable legal injury.”
Carlos Moore, an African American attorney from Grenada, filed the suit back in February asking Reeves to declare the flag an unconstitutional relic of slavery.
Governor Bryant took to Facebook praising Judge Reeves’ ruling, saying the fate of the Mississippi flag should be determined by voters.
