Judge Dismisses Case for Architect Against Slavery Museum

   FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a creditor's lawsuit that sought to lift deed restrictions on the U.S. National Slavery Museum's proposed home in Fredericksburg.
 
     U.S. District Judge James R. Spencer ruled Tuesday Pei Partnership Architects hadn't shown it has any legal right over the title to the land. Spencer also said the company hadn't proven that there was a controversy over its rights regarding the land that would be solved by a legal judgment.
 
     The 38-acre property can be used for an African-American heritage museum or for charitable, educational or public purposes.
 
     Pei argued that the restrictions discourage developers willing to pay big money for the real estate.
 
     Paul Prados, an attorney who represents Pei, tells media outlets that the company likely will pursue the matter in circuit court.
