Judge awards $6.7 million to graffiti artists whose work was destroyed to build condos

US District Court Judge Frederic Block made the award Monday after a jury ruled in November that Jerry Wolkoff, the owner of the buildings that comprised 5Pointz, violated the artists’ rights under federal law. Eric Baum, an attorney for the artists, told CNN that the decision is “a triumph for artists all around the country.”
