Placeholder Image
Chancery Court Judge Bart Stanley sided with the city of McMinnville and against Roland Advertising in its lawsuit against the municipality over signs.Roland Advertising, owned by Dave Roland, filed two cases against the city claiming the city has “caused and is causing irreparable harm to Roland for which Roland has no adequate remedy at law” for not allowing the business to place digital billboards here.The company asked Stanley to determine if the city dismissed Roland’s requests without due consideration. Stanley says the city did not.“The court finds that there is sufficient material evidence to support the findings for the board to rule as they did,” he said. “The board’s decisions were neither arbitrary nor capricious, were supported by material evidence, and were not illegal.”Roland Advertising, called the plaintiff, requested monetary damages of $25,000, while the city asked the request to be denied.Stanley sided with the city.“Plaintiff’s request for monetary damages of $25,000 is denied and the defendant’s motion for summary judgment is granted,” said Stanley.
