TBS, ad agency to pay $2M for stunt

From Times Wire Reports

Turner Broadcasting Systems and an advertising agency agreed to pay $2 million in compensation for planting blinking electronic devices around the Boston area in a publicity stunt that set off a terrorism scare.

The agreement between Turner, Interference Inc., and several state and local agencies resolves any potential civil or criminal claims against the two companies, Atty. Gen. Martha Coakley said.
