A Virginia judge has blocked the city of Charlottesville’s effort to remove Confederate statues. The Daily Progress reports the three-day civil trial that ended Friday included a judge’s ruling preventing the removal of statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. The planned removal of the Lee statue prompted a white nationalist rally in 2017 in which counter protester Heather Heyer was killed. Residents had sued Charlottesville, citing a state law that protects war memorials. The city said that law violated the U.S. Constitution because the statues send a racist message. A young Ohio woman broke down in tears when she was cleared of murder charges involving the death of her newborn child. A jury cleared Brooke Skylar Richardson, 20, of aggravated murder, involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment charges of a baby she had given birth to and buried in the family’s backyard. (Published Friday, Sept. 13, 2019) Circuit Court Judge Richard Moore ruled Wednesday that the law’s intent was historic preservation not discrimination. He issued a permanent injunction preventing the removal. Moore said Friday he’ll award the plaintiff’s attorneys’ fees but will weigh arguments before determining the amount.
