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.
