Clearance given to remove Confederate monument near Dallas convention center

The city of Dallas now has clearance to remove the Confederate monument that stands six stories near the convention center.

This week, a Dallas County district judge denied a request for a temporary injunction that would have prevented the city from removing the monument from Pioneer Park.

There is no word yet on if the city has a timeline for removal, but it has been covered in black plastic.

The city council is also set to approve the $1.4 million sale of the Lee monument at Wednesday's meeting.
