The Supreme Court of the United States ( SCOTUS ) has released its decision in
City of Austin , Texas v . Reagan National Advertising of Austin , LLC , Et al
. This case examined the City of Austin’s sign ordinance , which regulates “off - premises” signs ( those that advertise a business located elsewhere ) more strictly than “on - premises” signs .
In a 6 - 3 decision , SCOTUS ruled in favor of the city , finding the distinction between off - premises and on - premises signs to be facially content - neutral , making the ordinances likely to stand up to judicial scrutiny .
For more information on this ruling , please see the League’s recent
Frank Marshall , Esq . , Associate General Counsel ,
