A civil district-court judge in Louisiana refused to issue a restraining order Monday, clearing the way for New Orleans to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard from a park.

The city is trying to pull down three still-standing Confederate statues, but opponents said they’d found evidence that the Beauregard statue was on property controlled by the state, not the city, so it couldn’t be taken down.

Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, commissioner of the state agency that controls the park, said he discovered the link Sunday, and city resident Richard Marksbury went to court Monday asking for the restraining order.

But Civil District Court Judge Kern Reese rejected Mr. Marksbury’s request, permitting the city to move forward with removal, according to the Advocate, Baton Rouge’s daily paper.
