"The Virginia Supreme Court announced Friday it will not rehear an appeal of a local judge’s decision — a ruling that will keep the Confederate flag off of the Sutherlin Mansion’s front lawn.
The court upheld Danville’s removal of a Confederate flag from a monument on the grounds of the historic Main Street building, according to a news release from the city.
The Heritage Preservation Association had petitioned for a rehearing before the full court after a three-judge panel of the court ruled in June that it found “no reversible error in the judgment” of Danville Circuit Judge James J. Reynolds.
“I am pleased the Virginia Supreme Court finds no problems with the ordinance adopted by City Council limiting which flags could be flown on public property,” City Attorney Clarke Whitfield said Friday. “I wish to thank attorney Jeremy Carroll for representing the city in this case.”"
Restoring the honor!
