There was an atheist billboard that was recently taken down in the city of Rancho Cucamonga in California:
At first, it was thought that city officials forced General Outdoor Advertising to take down the ad.
Then city officials said they had nothing to do with it.
Now, the Freedom From Religion Foundation says otherwise. They are suing the city:
The Foundation had prepaid for the board and contracted for a two-month run beginning in mid-November. The Board had been up for less than a week when it was removed at the apparent instigation of Linda Daniels, Rancho Cucamonga Development Director.
Their lawsuit (PDF) says the following:
According to FFRF:
The Foundation is seeking reasonable compensatory and punitive damages and attorney’s fees.
The lawsuit is being filed in U.S. District Court, Central District of California…
If they can prove Daniels had something to do with this, it should be an open/shut case, yes?
