This news today is particularly gratifying to me since during this Bryn Mawr Five Points Billboard fiasco, Bartkowski's lawyer basically tried to intimidate me and others like LM Commissioner Scott Zelov and spin the course of events. I am sure he still thinks it's all a giant conspiracy, but what I really want to know is what does he get out of all these billboard challenges all over creation besides billable hours? I mean who all has a piece of the Bartkowski pie?

Five Points Billboard Comes Down

The billboard was removed after an appeals court ruled in Lower Merion's favor.

The billboard at the Five Points intersection in Bryn Mawr has been taken down after an appeals court ruled earlier this month it had to be removed.

If the sign had not been removed or covered, fines would have been imposed on billboard company AdSmart Outdoor Advertising, Inc., Lower Merion Township Commissioner Scott Zelov said last week while the sign remained.

The Lower Merion Zoning Board first ruled against the billboard in 2010. That decision was reinforced by the Court of Common Pleas, county court and on March 13 by the Commonwealth Court.

Main Line Health was most recently leasing the ad space on the Five Points billboard.

"While Bryn Mawr Hospital used the wall space as an opportunity to educate the community about the latest healthcare programs and services available at the hospital, we fully understand and respect our neighbors wishes for removal of the billboard," spokeswoman Bridget Therriault wrote in an email last week.

An email to Thaddeus Bartkowski Tuesday evening was not immediately returned.

Main Line Health is a piece of work.  Oh yes, that sign was very educational.

And in other Bartkowski Billboard News, today they got turned down in Delco County Court for Springfield! He will undoubtedly appeal, but this is nice news in any event!
