Decade Old Times Square LED Billboard Fight Moved Toward Trial Albeit Shortened by Ruling

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 – Back in 2016 Media Glow Digital, LLC sued Panasonic Corporation of North America for what had already been a five year delay in setting up an LED advertising sign on the side of the Millennium Broadway hotel in Times Square.      

     On March 11, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York  Judge Paul G. Gardephe held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

Judge Gardephe noted this is one of the oldest cases on his docket.

He ruled on motions in limine, to move the case along in a detailed oral ruling. The breach of warranty claim was dismissed on consent.

Jump cut to October 12, 2022, when Judge Gardephe ruled that plaintiffs' requests to add a claim for damages sustained "in reliance on the Millennium Sign Agreement's contractual warranties and to assert negligence claims against Panasonic at trial are denied. So the trial will be substantially shorter, the parties agreed.

The case is Media Glow Digital, LLC et al v. Panasonic Corporation of North America, 16-cv-7907 (Gardephe)
