Lawsuit planned to stop UofL Confederate monument removal

A Republican candidate for Congress says he will file a lawsuit to stop Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and University of Louisville President James Ramsey from removing a Confederate monument from the school’s campus.
    
Everett Corley tells local media that he will be filing a temporary restraining order in Jefferson Circuit Court on Monday against Fischer that will demand he cease and desist from any efforts to remove the memorial. He says the restraining order will be on the grounds of irreparable harm to himself and the community.
    
The memorial is on city-owned property. Fischer and University officials announced Friday that the monument will be removed.
    
Fischer’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request from the Courier-Journal for comment.
