Mayor Mitch Landrieu Issues Statement on Federal Court’s Decision on Liberty Place Monument Case

NEW ORLEANS —Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu issued the following statement on the federal court’s decision on the Liberty Place Monument case:

“In less than 48 hours, another court has affirmed the City’s right to control its property. Today, the federal court allowed the City to remove the Liberty Place Monument, in my opinion the most offensive of the four we will be moving. This monument, erected by the White League to specifically revere white supremacy and commemorate an attack on law enforcement, has never represented New Orleans or American values.
