Hearing Set in Federal Court 03/09 RE: Sign Co.

THIS COULD BE HUGE: U.S. District Court Judge Audrey Collins will hear an extremely important case -- Monday at 10AM. This can affect the city's control to regulate signs throughtout the City of Los Angeles.

Here are the Details:

Monday, March 16, 2009

United States Government Secret Service:
Roybal Federal Building - Courtroom 680

255 E Temple St
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(213) 894-4830

We had a conversation today with a source at the L.A. City Attorney's office and have a small preview of this hearing...

There will be 120 plaintiffs -- WOW seems like a coalition (individuals from the various sign companies including World Wide Rush) facing the City of Los Angeles and challenging the constitutionality of the Los Angeles Sign Ordinance.

One of the components of this hearing (4 cases will be heard in all) is a contempt of court issue filed by World Wide Rush (WWR) and this directly relates to the goings on at 10801 National.

You may have wondered why it's been so quiet over at our location??

You got it -- WWR and the owner (Frank Rahban) are waiting to see how Judge Collins will rule on this issue. From our understanding, a tentative ruling will be set forth by the judge and soon after we will get an official ruling either later that day or sometime during the week.

OR... Just drive by 10801 later in the week and if you see a tarp over the building and the windows, you can be certain Judge Collins ruled in favor of the sign mongers \*^).

To access information on the ruling you can call (213)978-8120 or (213)978-8100.
Folks at these numbers should be able to provide you with information or direct you to a source that can access information on the ruling.

This could produce some interesting drama -- Stay tuned.
