Rally's sign too much to stomach for Shelbyville officials

July 25, 2007
Shelbyville's planning commission has set on a back burner plans by a nearby developer to build a Rally's hamburger restaurant close to Interstate 74. The problem, according to The Shelbyville News, is that the black Rally's sign violates a city code banning the color on building exteriors.

An attorney for developer 3 Bees Management Inc., of Flat Rock, told the commission the black checkered pattern is a trademark, thus is protected by federal law.

Commissioners decided to meet Aug. 6 to give themselves time to consult an attorney.
