FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) — A Richmond-area attorney and House of Delegates member is asking a Fredericksburg judge to delay a hearing that could clear the way for the city to auction the National Slavery Museum property to recoup back taxes.

Attorney and Del. Joe Morrissey filed paperwork in Fredericksburg this week seeking to delay a Monday hearing in the case, the Free Lance-Star reports (http://bit.ly/W9BhZb). Attorneys for the city plan to ask a Circuit Court judge to appoint them as special commissioners for the sale of 38 acres that was gifted to the National Slavery Museum in 2002.
