    Marc Ecko Wins Ruling Against New York City
    By Miles Bennett

    Marc Ecko won a ruling in court yesterday (August 22), when a federal judge ordered New York City to reinstate a permit allowing Ecko Unlimited to hold a block party featuring graffiti art on mock subway cars.

    Judge Jed S. Radkoff was the judge who gave the order, calling the cancellation of the permit unconstitutional and protected by the 1st amendment. He also poked fun at Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's argument that the party would incite the defacement of real subway cars.

    "By the same token, presumably, a street performance of 'Hamlet' would be tantamount to encouraging revenge or murder," Rakoff reasoned. "As for a street performance of 'Odepius Rex,' don't even think about it."

    Ecko was originally issued a permit on July 18 to allow his company to close several city blocks, where he would have graffiti artists paint on metal panels made to look like the sides of a subway car, but City Hall abruptly canceled the permit last week, shortly after Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg cited the plan would influence young people to do the same.

    "Defacing subway cars is hardly a joke," Bloomberg said of the Ecko-sponsored event.

    Ecko Enterprises has offered to disavow unlawful conduct by making statements discouraging unlawful graffiti at the art exhibition itself or by organizing artists to convey that message in the public schools.

    The Graffiti Exhibit will go on as planned tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on West 22nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues.
