LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Everett Corley, Republican 3rd Congressional District and candidate for Congress will file a motion to issue a restraining order against Mayor Greg Fischer on Monday morning against the removal of the Confederate Veterans Monument near the U of L campus.

This temporary order would demand a cease and desist from the removal of the monument to those veterans killed in the Civil War.

A press conference will be held on Monday at 9:30 a.m. at 7th and Jefferson Street. 

This restraining order is on the grounds of irreparable harm to himself and the community.
