When is a billboard too racy?

A billboard in Atlantic City, New Jersey has recently garnered national attention.  The billboard for “Moonshine Follies”, a show running at the Resorts Casino Hotel (“Resorts”) from February 20th to April 17th, pictures a woman’s bare bottom as part of the advertisement.   NJ Transit owns the land on which the billboard is situated and received several complaints about the explicit nature of the advertisement.

NJ Transit informed Resorts that it wanted it to take down the billboard.  Resorts then filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to keep the billboard up.  Judge Nelson C. Johnson of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Atlantic County, preliminarily ruled that the billboard would stay up until he could convene a March 10th hearing to determine its fate.
