Lawyers: Courts correctly rejected Confederate flag lawsuit

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Attorneys for Gov. Phil Bryant say an African-American lawyer who sued the state failed to show he suffered harm because of the Confederate battle emblem on the state flag.

Because of that, they are telling the U.S. Supreme Court that lower courts were correct to reject the lawsuit that sought to have the flag declared an unconstitutional relic of slavery.
