Court Upholds Publishers on Atlanta Airport Newsracks

january 9, 2002  09:43 am
A three-judge federal appeals court panel has upheld a lower court ruling that Atlanta can't force newspapers into city-owned newsracks that bear Coca-Cola advertisements at Hartsfield Airport, Editor & Publisher reports. The city also planned to charge the newspapers $20 a month for the boxes, more than the administrative cost of maintaining them, E&P says. The city may ask the full 12-member 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to rule in the case.
