The Cactus Car Planter – art or nuisance – <a href=";entry_id=1589" title="" onmouseover="window.status=’’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">lawsuit in Austin</a> takes on a decidely consititutional character as the business owners refuse to move it. <br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">Less than a week after Municipal Judge John Burke ruled the Oldsmobile turned cactus planter outside the San Marcos Planet K store a “public nuisance,” the company’s founder and CEO has filed in district court for an injunction, and the city of San Marcos is about to turn it over to the feds….<br />
