Dispute Between Businessman, Baltimore Could Cost Taxpayers

Posted: 10/19/2017 21:57:00 -04:00 Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - A legal dispute over the use of billboards at a Baltimore arena is heading to the state's second-highest court, with taxpayers potentially on the hook for over $3 million.

The Baltimore Sun reports a judge ruled in favor of businessman Edwin F. Hale Sr., saying the city had no right to commandeer billboards that Hale owned at the Royal Farms Arena. Hale was awarded a $3.36 million judgment, but city officials are appealing the ruling to the state's Court of Special Appeals.

City lawyers Kurt Heinrich and Steven Potter argued that Hale forfeited his right to nine billboards on the arena's exterior when he didn't remove them after losing a contract to conduct advertising at the arena.

The court is expected to take up the case in December.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
