Justices to hear Hanover sign dispute

ASHLAND (AP) A legal dispute between the owner of an RV dealership and Hanover County has reached the Supreme Court of Virginia.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports EMAC LLC, the owner of the land where McGeorge Rolling Hills RV Supercenter is located, claimed the Board of Supervisors unfairly discriminated when it denied a permit for an LED sign that would be used for advertising. EMAC said the board approved a permit application from an outlet mall developer, but not for the RV business.

EMAC said the signs could attract motorists and could generate thousands of dollars.

A circuit court judge dismissed the case in September 2014, but EMAC was granted an appeal in May. If the Supreme Court decides in EMAC’s favor, the case will be sent back to the trial courts.
