A judge has ruled in favor of the city of Walla Walla in a dispute over a purple octopus mural above a downtown toy store.
The Union-Bulletin reports the judge has rejected the store owner's claim that the city sign code is unconstitutional.
Inland Octopus toy store owner Bob Catsiff went to Walla Walla County Superior Court trying to save the giant purple octopus mural that was painted in September. He calls it art.
The city says it's a sign code violation, and the fine has been growing at $100 a day.
