Judge nullifies Alabama law that protects long-time Confederate monuments

A judge has ruled the Alabama Memorial Preservation Act doesn’t have any legal authority and the city of Birmingham doesn’t have to take down its wooden screen placed around a Confederate monument in Linn Park.


The Alabama Attorney General’s Office plans to appeal the ruling. “The Attorney General’s Office stands by its original assessment that the Alabama Monument Preservation Act is constitutional. Therefore, we will be filing an appeal,” according to the AG’s statement issued Tuesday morning.
