The Supreme Court is considering whether to review whether a federal judge should be allowed to remove the names of Confederate soldiers from a website devoted to identifying the dead.
The issue of Confederate memorials has dominated the Supreme Courts for the past year, with the court recently deciding to take up the issue of whether it is constitutional to remove statues of Confederate leaders.
The Supreme Court declined to weigh in on the issue last year, when a divided panel of justices found that a Virginia law barring the removal of Confederate monuments violates the First Amendment.
The court then ruled in favor of a state law in which the removal is not a crime.
But that ruling came with a caveat: A lower court judge could still order the removal if it was deemed a public nuisance.
The court, however, ruled against the removal last week of the names and images of Confederate heroes from a page dedicated to identifying those who died in the Civil War.
The case involves the removal by a Georgia-based developer of the site where the memorials are located.
The removal is opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union, which argues that the statues should be protected as historical objects, and by a number of groups.
But the high court decided not to review the case.
A federal appeals court is expected to take it up soon.
