The fate of Silent Sam is once again up in the air. This week, an Orange County Superior Court judge voided the controversial settlement that gave the monument to the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The judge ordered the group to give the statue back to the UNC System, along with the $2.5 million dollars that UNC paid the group for its upkeep.
