Resorts Casino Hotel has  a new billboard on the Atlantic City Expressway above the rail station.  Advertising Resorts' "Moonshine Follies", a 1920s themed review, the billboard features "a woman's near naked buttocks".  After a flurry of complaints, NJ Transit threatened to take down the billboard, and Resorts went to court for an injunction.

The hearing on the injunction is scheduled for March 10, and Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Nelson Johnson ruled that the sign can stay up until then.  Judge Johnson is the author of Boardwalk Empire, which recounts the history of Atlantic and its roll in organized crime during the era featured in the show. That book became the basis for the HBO series of the same name.
