Controversy has swirled since four aldermen voted to deny the request to hold the March 24th parade in Downtown Starkville.

The four opposed did not take part in the debate during the meeting and have not said why they denied the permit.

A federal lawsuit has been filed seeking to get the board to overturn its ruling or have a judge issue an injunction allowing the parade to take place.
