Court won't revive suit over Mississippi state flag

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A federal appeals court has blocked an African-American attorney's effort to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the Mississippi state flag. The man says he'll take the case to the Supreme Court.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday that it would not revive a lawsuit rejected by a lower court.

Carlos Moore filed suit in 2016, calling the flag "state-sanctioned hate speech."
