I’m in love with this lawsuit and its result

From 538 Significant Digits:

$6.75 million

5Pointz was a warehouse complex in Long Island City, Queens, that was transformed by graffiti into a cultural landmark. Of course, that graffiti was painted over by the warehouses’ owner in 2013 — part of an effort to build luxury residencies on the location. On Monday, though, a federal judge awarded $6.75 million in damages to 21 artists whose work was wiped out. [The Washington Post]

Here’s the story (and pictures) from the Times. Which is, you know, the home paper for this deal.
