You know those poster-sized signs around the city, dotting corners of mini malls and gas stations? The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear a case between the city of Los Angeles and Metrolights, a company now owned by Fuel Outdoor, reports Dennis Hathway at Ban Billboard Blight blog. The loser in the battle is Fuel, who appealed a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in favor of Los Angeles, which originally cited the signs for violating city law, a 2002 off-site sign ban. So what happens next? Will Fuel be forced to take them down? Inquiring minds wonder.
