L.A. Wins Fight Against Billboards and Supergraphics

Los Angeles officials won a major victory in their fight against unpermitted outdoor advertisements, with the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the city’s ban on new supergraphics, billboards and freeway-facing signs.

The three-judge panel found that the City Council did not deny anyone’s 1st Amendment right to free speech by approving billboards in some instances but not others. The court also struck down injunctions that blocked the city from seeking the removal of unpermitted, multistory vinyl signs at nearly 40 locations.
