Dakota Smith at Curbed LA stuck it out into the wee hours of this morning as the large illegal supergraphic that landed one businessman in jail over the weekend was taken down. As she witnessed the slow operation alongside David Berger, special assistant to the City Attorney, the businessman's lawyer, Andrew Stein, asked why other supergraphics and billboards got to stay up. "Why is that one legal, because it's part of the building?" he asked of Berger, pointing out a billboard at the Hollywood & Highland complex across the street. Even more suspicious is an Asics ad that was apparently installed last week on one of the other corners.
