Louisa County Confederate flag case to advance

By  | 

LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A court case is moving forward regarding a Confederate flag that was erected near Interstate 64 in Louisa County.

On July 15, there will be a hearing in the case in Louisa Circuit Court to set a court date.

The case was last in court on May 2 when the Virginia Flaggers appealed a Louisa County Board of Zoning Appeals decision denying a request to consider the flag a monument that should be left as it is.

The attorney argued the 120-foot pole should be considered a monument because it is part of a former Confederate soldier's grave.

The hearing next week will deal with two motions, one concerning whether or not the pole is a monument and the other on the county's zoning ordinances that impact the height of structures.
