Billboard Insider Publishes Allen Smith’s Third Installment in his First Amendment Series


Billboard Insider has published Allen Smith’s third installment in his series on First Amendment cases that impact outdoor advertising signs.  This article analyzes the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in Reed v. Town of Gilbert, which holds that an ordinance restricting the size, number, duration, and location of certain signs is subject to strict scrutiny because such restrictions are content-based, or because restrictions are enforced differently depending on the message of the sign.  Allen’s article can be found on Billboard Insider’s website at http://billboardinsider.com/the-impact-of-reed-v-gilbert.  For more information about Allen’s article, or eminent domain law, please contact Allen at 214-520-3300 or asmith@settlepou.com
