Metro Sign and Awning’s insight:
A Supreme Court decision regarding sign code was made last week for the first time in twenty years. The case, Reed v. Town of Gilbert (Ariz.), was brought forth after a church was limited on sign size and length of time signs could be displayed for temporary directional signs, even when political and ideological signs could be larger and displayed longer. The court decided unanimously that limits shall not be placed on temporary directional signs, as limiting these signs is a violation of the first amendment.
Due to the majority opinion being so broad, this case brings up concerns as to what might come in the near future. Could this ruling open up other sign codes to legal challenges? Will other sign types try to use this ruling to challenge sign codes? Let us know your thoughts.
