LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A federal judge has denied a last-minute request to stop Louisville officials from moving a Confederate monument to a nearby town.
The Courier-Journal reports U.S. District Judge Thomas Russell denied a request for a restraining order from Louisville resident Brennan James Callan on Saturday. Crews began dismantling the monument Saturday, a $400,000 project that is expected to take several days.
City officials announced this week they were moving the monument to Brandenburg. Protests of the 121-year-old monument increased following the 2015 racially-motivated shooting deaths of nine African-Americans at a church in South Carolina.
