Federal Court in Missouri Bans Anti-Eminent Domain Sign

 The mural at 1806 S. 13th Street

We learn from St. Louis Post-Dispatch on line  (http://interact.stltoday.com/blogzone/political-fix/political-fix/2010/03/judge-anti-eminent-domain-mural-is-not-art-must-come-down/) that a federal court in Missouri has ruled that an anti-eminent domain sign painted on the side of a building violates the local ordinance limiting signs in that area to 30 square feet. This sign is 360 square feet. The order states that the court’s ruling is not based on the sign’s contents but on the method used by the building’s owner to convey his message.
