Bouygues Telecom has been ordered by the Versailles court of appeals to
take down a mobile base station in Tassin-la-Demi-Lune, France, or be
fined EUR 500 per day until it does so. The lawyer for the plaintiffs,
Richard Forget, told AFP that Bouygues will also have to pay his
clients EUR 7,000 per couple for exposing them to a health hazard. The
case was brought by three couples who fought for the removal of 

transmitters installed on a mast near their homes in 2006. An initial

ruling by the court of Nanterre in September 2008 gave the operator

four months to take the equipment down, or pay a fine of EUR 100 per
day, plus EUR 3,000 in damages to each of the couples.
