Attorney Carlos Moore filed suit in federal court to have Mississippi’s 1894 flag declared unconstitutional. That case is still pending.
Randy Wallace posted a link to an attempted responsive pleading filed by a person or persons self-styled as “CITIZEN’S [Citizen’s] OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI,” purporting to be “with” Governor Dewey Phillip Bryant. You can access Randy’s link to the document here. Randy says that an exhibit to the so-called pleading was a Bible. Oh, and whoever filed this thing is not a named defendant.
Regardless how you view the merits of Mr. Moore’s suit, I am confident that you will concur that, as an attempted pleading, this document is pathetic. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves apparently agreed; he dismissed it with a cursory order.
