Attorney to appeal court ruling on state flag

The Mississippi attorney who sued Gov. Phil Bryant over the state flag filed a notice of appeal on Wednesday.

Carlos Moore of Grenada sued Bryant in February, saying, in part, he “fears for his safety and the safety of other African-Americans because of the state sanctioned hate speech communicated through the current state flag.”

Judge Carlton Reeves dismissed Moore’s complaint on Sept. 8, saying Moore did not articulate a “cognizable legal injury.”
