A statue of Robert E. Lee will stay standing in Virginia for now.  

Gov. Ralph Northam announced he would remove the statue in June after the death of George Floyd. 

A judge suspended the plans to give the opposing side time to appeal.

The Richmond residents who sued the governor plan to bring their case to the state Supreme Court.
