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.

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.
