Fulton County Must Pay In Billboard Lawsuit
" ATLANTA (AP) — Fulton County officials have been ordered to pay more than $4 million in damages and attorney fees to a billboard company as part of its ongoing fight to keep billboards out of Atlanta’s northern suburbs.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the verdict is the latest blow to Fulton County in its long-running legal battle against billboard companies.

A U.S. District Court jury in Atlanta last month awarded the $3.97 million in damages to KH Outdoor, which sued the county in 2003. Last week, a federal judge ordered the county to pay $477,156 in attorneys’ fees and expenses to the company’s lawyers.

Adam Webb, a lawyer for the billboard company, declined to comment. Fulton County Attorney David Ware said an appeal by the county “remains a viable option.” "
