Bright Ruling A significant federal court case has been decided that could change the way that signs, graphics and visual communications are regulated. In Thomas v. Bright, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that the government cannot distinguish between on-premise and off-premise signage because it is an unconstitutional content-based distinction. At this point, the Thomas decision applies only to laws that prohibit offpremise signs with non-commercial speech in the Sixth Circuit's jurisdiction: Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. It remains to be seen whether Tennessee will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Learn more at signs.org/thomas.
