Attorney tries to revive Confederate emblem lawsuit

A Mississippi attorney is asking a federal appeals court to revive his lawsuit that sought to erase the Confederate emblem from the state flag.

A district judge dismissed Carlos Moore’s lawsuit in September, rejecting his argument that the emblem is an unconstitutional vestige of slavery.

Moore’s attorney filed papers Tuesday asking the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to order a judge to hold a trial on the merits of Moore’s other arguments.
