LOS ANGELES — The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is now recommending a policy to sell naming rights on its train line be scrapped, even if it means losing millions of dollars in revenue.

Since board approval in December, the staff received new information from the Los Angeles County Counsel’s Office saying corporate naming decisions by Metro could lead to free speech entanglements, potentially exposing the agency with nearly a $6 billion budget to lawsuits.

Metro staff is recommending the agency returns to naming stations and train stops according to nearby streets, cities, or geography. For the full story, click here.
