State supreme court ruling stalls removal of Confederate monument
The Town of Edenton was scheduled to relocate its confederate monument on March 30, yet it still remains. Information on the statue's relocation has been sparse, advocates say.
Until late last week, when the Town of Edenton issued a response to recent editorials, letters to the editor and citizen complaints accusing the town of not taking action.
The Town said it is barred from moving the statue due to a restraining order approved by Chowan County Superior Court Judge Jerry Tillett.
The Town approved its relocation in February, but the Daughters of the Confederacy filed suit. A resolution to that suit is not expected until after the state Supreme Court rules on a similar case out of Asheville, which could take up to a year.
