Lawsuit Challenging Confederate Flag Ordinance Dismissed

Posted:

Lexington, VA - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging an ordinance that says Confederate battle flags aren't allowed on municipal poles in Lexington.

U.S. District Judge Samuel Wilson ruled Thursday that the ordinance is reasonable.

The ordinance adopted last year allows only the city, state and national flags to be flown from municipal poles.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans filed suit saying the ordinance violates the group's free speech.
