Friends Of The Parks Sue To Keep Lucas Museum Off Lakefront

Chicago (CBS)

CHICAGO (CBS) – A parks advocacy group has filed a federal lawsuit against the city, seeking to block plans to keep filmmaker George Lucas’ proposed museum off the lakefront.

The city has chosen a parcel of land south of Soldier Field as the home for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, but the Friends of the Parks claimed in its lawsuit that the city does not have the authority to transfer that land to a private entity.
