Posted: Updated:
LEXINGTON, VA (WWBT) -

The Sons of Confederate Veterans group isn't giving up its fight to fly the Confederate flag on city-owned poles in Lexington.

The case heads to federal court in Richmond on Thursday. 

Attorneys for the Southern Heritage Group will challenge a recent Lexington ordinance that limits flags flown on downtown light poles to city and state flags.
