The Monument Fund

Preserving and Defending our Historic Monuments and Memorials

Trial postponed-- again

Jones Day on behalf of their four clients filed a request for a jury trial in December. The trial, already delayed from October 2018 to January 2019 at the Defendants’ request, will have to be delayed further. Now the earliest it could happen is March 2019; possibly September 2019.

Judge Moore granted our request to amend the Complaint to include the Jackson monument (originally the City had not threatened to remove Jackson, but changed their mind after August 12) and to also hold the City liable for the encroachment of covering the monuments with tarps.

A predicable flurry of new motions contest the efficacy of the Second Amended Complaint. These will be addressed in January.
