Graffiti Legalized In Atlanta

The Georgia ACLU has successfully petitioned the City of Atlanta to amend a law banning all graffiti, including commissioned graffiti art.

"The city of Atlanta is now a safe place for property owners who appreciate graffiti art.

The Georgia ACLU and the city of Atlanta have reached a settlement in a year-long constitutional challenge to the city's anti-graffiti ordinance. The agreement does away with penalties for property owners who commission murals for their buildings or who don't do enough to remove unwanted graffiti, but retains penalties for vandals who perform illegal tagging. The settlement also creates a new program using inmates to help clean up graffiti throughout the city."
