    Well now that they have identified themselves by taking ownership of their graffiti, they should be charged and held liable for the costs of cleaning up their graffiti, as well as costs for responding to their frivolous lawsuit

    NYC has become a mecca for crazy. I bet the building owner loses after Obama’s DoJ gets involved. The only thing the owner may have going for them is if he or she is black, gay, trans or Muslim.

    New York has a law preventing criminals from profiting from their crimes so if they win the suit the state has every right to seize their winnings. In effect it would be indirect taxation of the owners of the 5 points building.
