Heltzel v. Youngkin — Amicus brief supporting petition for certiorari

Jeremiah Morgan Constitutional Law, U. S. Supreme Court

In Heltzel, a group of plaintiffs are challenging the removal by former Governor Ralph Northam of the Robert E. Lee Monument, which had stood in Richmond for 120 years. The Heltzel plaintiffs are now seeking U.S. Supreme Court review of a decision of the Virginia Supreme Court which sanctioned that removal. Today, our firm filed the only amicus brief in support of the Lee Monument and against Cancel Culture. Cancel Culture is now directed just against not just Confederates like Lee, but also Union leaders like Grant and Lincoln, 2022. Since Virginia has already waived the right to respond to the request, the briefs have been distributed to the Justices, who will decide whether to take the case on March 25, 2022.
