Abstract

"City" piece on a $2,000 payment the city of Portland has paid to seven flea-market vendors at the Portland Expo to settle a lawsuit over loud music. The suit stemmed from the 1997-98 flea-market season at the Expo when the city invited radio station WPOR to use the Expo's sound system in exchange for airing promotional announcements for the weekly event. Vendors close to the speakers claimed the volume was so high potential customers were driven away.
