For those interested in the facts and the legal issues involved in the Lexington flag flap, you can go to this link and read the actual suit filed against the City of Lexington by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The pleading reads, in part:
". . . the Defendants are in violation of, and therefore in civil contempt of, the Consent Decree entered on August 13, 1993 . . ."
Knowing the back story, it's quite clear the SCV has a very strong case. The City of Lexington really is going to have a difficult time explaining the sequence of events on this issue - this will come out in the court proceedings. It's rather apparent what their intent was in passing the flag ordinance. That, I believe, will be the trap that snares them - and they set it themselves. Due to the original order and the obvious intent of the recent ordinance, I believe the court will see through the farce presented by the City of Lexington's attorneys and that the court will rule in favor of the SCV.
