Southern Legal Resource Center Update
We have made a critical decision on Confederate Free Speech in Government Schools. The 4th Circuit, as we expected, recently turned us down in the Candice Hardwick case. This past January, we endured very hostile questioning by a 3 Judge panel in Richmond, Virginia over Candice’s case. This same panel, using sophistry and completely ignoring the facts, upheld the dismissal of Candice’s case. Even though the facts (agreed to by the school) showed NO instances of disruption caused by the Confederate flag while Candice was in school – NONE! No fights, no brawls, no bloody noses, no black eyes – in a school that is half black!
No because of "the controversial nature of the flag statewide," and because of disruption 20-30 & 50 years ago, the court believed that was "sufficient" disruption to ban the flag!
Our last recourse is to the Supreme Court of the United States – we strongly believe we should finish what we start. Our application for a writ of Certiorari to the Supreme Court is due June 22. It will cost about $10,000 to research, format & file.
In times of universal deceit and corruption, putting the truth under oath and on the record is a revolutionary act. Putting the hypocrisy and chicanery of the school and the court under oath and on view to any member of the interested public is a revolutionary act.
If they choose to hear us in DC – we are ready. If they choose to ignore us – we have a message ready for the American & especially Southern People.
Help us get Candice to the Supreme Court – this case and your children’s liberty is too important not to finish. We have been fighting for Candice since 2003 – Help us finish the job.
Whatever happens will be a victory for the Southern People.
Chief Trial Counsel, SLRC
