In a group of billboard owners' First Amendment challenge to provisions of New York City's Zoning Resolution, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where: 1) the city was not required to adopt the "least restrictive means" of advancing its asserted interests; 2) the city did not violate the protections afforded commercial speech when it distinguished between plaintiffs' signs or billboards and those located on government property; and 3) the New York Constitution did not provide broader protection for commercial speech than the First Amendment.
