The Castleman statue is currently in storage after being removed in June 2020.
Mayor Craig Greenberg’s office has said it has no plans of its own to return it to its original location.
Back in April, justices disagreed with Jefferson County and the court of appeals rulings that affirmed the Metro Historic Landmarks Commission’s decision to remove the statue.
Friends of Louisville Public Art argued that some members in favor of its removal had been appointed by former Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, which created a conflict of interest.
There had been several attempts to take the statue away over…Judge to decide whether Confederate statue returns to Cherokee Triangle
