Wrinkled Lady Liberty Down

New, 45 comments

According to the Los Angeles Times, two supergaphics, including that wrinkled-looking 1969 poster at 6380 Wilshire (where the building tenants were suing) have been taken down. And in a separate story, the Times reports that "the city's lawyers are demanding that SkyTag [which put up the 1969 images and others] post a $2.36-million bond as an upfront payment if the judges uphold the billboard regulations. If the city prevails, fines for SkyTag's 118 locations could exceed $50 million, depending on the number of days that signs are up, the lawyers wrote in court papers." You can see the press release issued by Skytag owner Mike McNeilly in response to the bond request here. [LA Times]
