CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The future of the Caddo Parish Confederate monument was heard by a judge Tuesday morning.

Lawyers for the Shreveport chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Caddo Commission submitted a written brief to Judge Craig Marcotte, who will in turn send them his written opinion.

Within that opinion should be a resolution from Judge Marcotte on what should happen with the monument.

There is no timetable as to when Judge Marcotte will make a decision.

Last November the United Daughters of the Confederacy requested the temporary restraining order to keep the monument from being moved.

In December, the Caddo Parish Commission approved $500,000 in funding to pay for the removal of the monument.

The Caddo Commission originally voted to remove the monument back in 2017.
