Arizona electronic-billboard ban upheld

State’s high court backs 2011 ruling by Appeals Court

By Michael Clancy

The Arizona Republic

The Arizona Supreme Court ruled earlier this week to uphold a lower court’s decision banning electronic billboards in the state.

The high court on Tuesday denied the petition for review from American Outdoor Advertising, the defendant in the suit filed in 2008.

The Arizona Court of Appeals decided last November that electronic billboards violate the Arizona Highway Beautification Act’s ban on intermittent light.

Since then, Arizona passed a new law banning the billboards in much of the state but permitting them in most of Maricopa County and parts of Pinal, Yuma and LaPaz counties. “The new statute was enacted to override the court decision,” said Cameron Artigue, attorney for Scenic Arizona, plaintiff in the suit.
