NBC DFW reports that a Dallas-based law firm won the auction for the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee that the city previously removed two years ago.
Holmes Firm PC put in the winning bid of $1.435 million for the Lee statue after the city decided to put it up for auction.
This was one of the more high-profile confederate monument removals in the U.S. after the fallout of the Charlottesville, Virginia rally.
This firm is owned by Ronald L. Holmes and it has no plans at the moment for what it will do with the statue. Nor has it stated that it is representing another person who wanted the bronze sculpture of Lee and another solider on horseback.
