5 Locations were named in this week's complain | View this in a larger map

The Los Angeles City Attorneys office this week filed for a civil law enforcement action in regards to five supergraphic locations around Los Angeles. Vanguard Outdoor LLC sign company, a handful of sign installers and property owners were all named as defendants. "These supergraphic signs were and are illegal in that they were erected, and have been used and maintained, without required permits and inspections," alleges the complaint, which describes them as public nuisances.

The city is seeking an injunction against the companies from further engaging in prohibited forms of advertising. Additionally, a $2,500 per day fine is sought -- yes, retroactively -- as well as "disgorgement of all gross revenue generated by the erection of these signs," the city attorney's office said.
