Advertising company sues The City of Weston

CLARKSBURG — An advertising company is suing The City of Weston, a municipal corporation, citing alleged tortious contractual interference.

Lamar Outdoor Advertising filed a complaint on June 23, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia Clarksburg Division against The City of Weston alleging that the municipal corporation violated the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, plaintiff suffered monetary damages due to loss of revenue. The plaintiff holds The City of Weston responsible because the defendant allegedly rejected plaintiff's application to erect the billboard on the property owned by the Lewis County Board of Education based on an Ordinance enacted on December 2016.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order to repeal the City's Ordinance that restricts freedom of speech, award for damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other relief deemed appropriate. It is represented by Robert L. Greer and Jenna L. Robey of Greer Law Offices PLLC in Clarksburg.
