Greenberg Glusker Obtains $2M Verdict Against Regency Outdoor Advertising

Greenberg Glusker today announced that it has secured a two million dollar verdict against Regency Outdoor Advertising on behalf of its clients, West Hollywood nightclub Whisky-A-Go-Go and Ace Outdoor Advertising. Partner Lee A. Dresie was lead trial counsel in both phases of trial -- an eight-day trial on liability and damages, followed by a one-day trial on punitive damages. This is Dresie’s second seven-figure verdict this year.

“We were very pleased with the judge’s decision,” said Dresie. “The judge recognized the severe damages that Regency’s conduct caused our clients, and that a significant punitive damage award was necessary to discourage similar conduct in the future.”

The case involved Regency’s billboard sign on the rooftop of the Whisky, a musical landmark on the Sunset Strip of Los Angeles. Regency refused to surrender possession of the rooftop upon termination of its billboard lease. Regency’s actions prevented Ace, a rising force in the competitive outdoor advertising business, from taking over the rooftop in a timely manner.
