LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas car dealership has removed a 109-foot-tall flagpole after the Nevada Supreme Court ruled against it.

Towbin Automotive Group had flown a huge American flag atop the
pole, but Las Vegas code says flagpoles must be 40 feet tall or lower unless the City Council grants an exception.

The council initially permitted the flagpole but reversed its decision after residents complained about wind noise from the flag.

Last month the state Supreme Court ruled against Las Vegas Development Co. LLC and upheld a decision by Clark County District
Judge Michael Villani that preserved the City Council order against
the flagpole.

The case had been in the court system since 2007.
