SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The large and bright 'X' logo that sat on top of the San Francisco headquarters of the company formerly known as Twitter has been taken down.
And now, the company will be fined for installing the logo on the roof without a permit.
On Friday, a notice of violation was issued to the property owner of the X headquarters at 1355 Market, according to the Department of Building Inspection in San Francisco.
The DBI says fees will be for removal of the structure, building permits and to cover the costs of DBI and planning department's investigation.

Patience is a virtue.

provides a basis for the courts to interfere with or halt the investigation. Trump knew this, and now Latham does too: "No doubt the threat of prosecution can weigh heavily on the mind of anyone under investigation. But without diminishing the seriousness of the burden, that ordinary experience cannot support extraordinary jurisdiction." Trump v. United States, 54 F.4th 689, 700 (11th Cir. 2022) (citations omitted); see also Ramsden v. United States, 2 F.3d 322, 326 (9th Cir. 1993) ("if the mere threat of prosecution were allowed to constitute irreparable harm, every potential defendant could point to the same harm and invoke the equitable powers of the court"
SO ORDERED this 31$ day of July 2023.
Why it matters: The divorce has created a divide in the partys legal apparatus going into the 2024 election with Elias representing Democrats' committees for House, Senate and state legislative races, while Biden's campaign and the Democratic National Committee mostly get legal help elsewhere.
The big picture: The split between Biden's team and Elias who had represented the DNC since 2009 reflects a larger fight within the party on the best legal approach to expand and protect voting rules.
* Elias argues Democrats should be fighting on every possible front filing a flurry of lawsuits and exerting public pressure through the media.
* Bidens team, long guided by lawyer Bob Bauer, is concerned that while Elias' approach may be emotionally satisfying and make for good headlines, it can backfire with the current conservative makeup of the judiciary.
* The president's team wants to be more selective in picking legal fights, especially going into a 2024 election that could be especially litigious.
When FBI agents swooped onto Larry Householder's farm in Perry County to arrest him, they encountered a compliant political leader, an angry wife and a house in disarray, according to Jeff Williams, the former leader of the FBI public corruption team.
In an exclusive interview with the USA TODAY Network Ohio bureau, Williams revealed details about the Householder investigation and arrest and talked about how public corruption undermines democracy.
When agents showed up around 6 a.m. on July 21, 2020, then-Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder didn't make any comments or ask questions as they put him in handcuffs, Williams said.
His wife Taundra Householder, however, "barricaded" the door, he said.

The strikes came after Zelensky said Sunday that attacks inside Russia are inevitable. Kremlin officials accused Kyiv of drone strikes in Moscow and Russian-annexed Crimea. Ukrainian officials have not confirmed whether Kyiv played a role in those attacks.

The Alabama senator refused to allow any of the more than 250 stalled military promotions to quickly advance, retribution for the Defense Department allowing paid leave for abortions. Democrats, who could have called individual votes on the nominations over the August recess, ultimately decided it was the GOPs responsibility to convince Tuberville. That didnt happen, the Senate left for five weeks, and the Republicans nearly five-month hold appears almost certain to stretch into September.
And while conservatives are mainly cheering the football coach-turned senator on, there are signs that some Republicans are having a hard time accepting the one-man blockade. Summing up the feeling back in Alabama, Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Ala.) observed: Mixed emotions.
Some people like it, some people dont understand it. Some of our older military folks arent really happy about it; they understand it better than anybody, Carl said.
