High court won't hear case on Walla Walla's purple octopus mural

WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- Walla Walla's octopus mural may not be as formidable come next month.

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Inland Octopus' pleas to take another look at our state's verdict in favor of the city.

Officials have given owner Bob Catsiff 30 days to bring it within code.

Catsiff's attorney told KEPR while all hope looks lost, they're considering filing a second case on grounds of unconstitutional selective enforcement.

Catsiff will decide whether or not to file the complaint in the next 30 days, or right before the mural has to come down.

He's facing fines for every day the mural remains up. As of now, Walla Walla tells us that the total is up to $90,000.
