According to Dailymail, Judge has awarded $6.7 million to graffiti artists who sued after their work was destroyed on buildings torn down to make room for luxury condos.
Federal Judge Frederic Block in Brooklyn noted Monday there was no remorse from the owner of the warehouse buildings.
Twenty-one aerosol artists had sued the owner of a Long Island City, Queens, site known as 5Pointz. Their graffiti was painted over in 2013, and the buildings were torn down a year later.
The ruling followed a three-week trial in November.
The judge said he would not have assessed so much in damages if the owner had awaited his permits and demolished the art 10 months later than he did.49276a4300000578 5382921 image a 13 1518486442458 49276a1e00000578 5382921 image a 12 15184864354041 49276a2a00000578 5382921 image a 20 1518486503436 49276a3f00000578 5382921 image a 15 1518486462744 49276a1500000578 5382921 image a 21 1518486510473 49276a3500000578 5382921 image a 19 1518486495575 49276a4300000578 5382921 image a 13 15184864424581 49276e1e00000578 5382921 image a 18 1518486486935 49276e2e00000578 5382921 image a 17 151848648119349276e2200000578 5382921 image a 14 1518486452585 dt common streams streamserver
