A federal appeals court is set to hear arguments over the denial of a permit for the Sons of Confederate Veterans to march in a 2015 Christmas parade.
Court records show the group was denied permission to march in the parade in a north Louisiana city amid concerns that many would be offended by the group’s display of a Confederate flag.
A federal judge ruled in favor of the city and parade organizers last year.
The Louisiana Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans have appealed.
Arguments at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals were set for Tuesday.
