LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — The controversial statue of Confederate Gen. Alfred Mouton isn’t going anywhere any time soon after a state district judge postponed a hearing on the statue’s fate for at least the fourth time earlier this week.

The nearly 100-year statue has become a focal point during protest happening in our country.

While city officials have expressed a willingness to discuss the statue’s removal, a court order dating back to 1980 would have to be overturned before that can happen.

No reason was given for the court’s postponement of the matter, nor was a rescheduling date given.
