(Daily Progress) A foundation whose inability to keep its corporate papers up to date might learn a hard lesson if the judge hearing the so-called Charlottesville statue case decides the snafu deprives the group of the right to sue over its failed bid for the Robert E. Lee statue.

“It’s a technicality, but it’s an important technicality,” University of Richmond law professor Carl Tobias told The Daily Progress.

Tobias declined to predict which way retired Judge Paul M. Peatross Jr. would rule, but Peatross heard three hours of testimony and arguments Tuesday in Albemarle Circuit Court.

At issue was the status of the Ratcliffe Foundation of Tazewell County, one of two groups waging a lawsuit against the city of Charlottesville over the fate of Lee statue. That group and the Trevilian Station Battlefield Foundation of Louisa County have argued that the city’s December 2021 decision to give the bronze equestrian statue to the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center was contrary to both local policy and Virginia’s Public Procurement Act.
