The Supreme Court declined to hear the case filed against the Chicago Cubs by Skybox on Sheffield and Lakeview Baseball Club next to Wrigley Field. They sued in 2015 claiming the right field video board the Cubs were adding would block their views of the ballpark and violate terms of a 2004 revenue sharing agreement. A federal judge dismissed the case because she said the agreement allowed ”any expansion of Wrigley Field approved by governmental authorities.” In September a three judge panel of the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal. If you had a business across the street from Wrigley Field you know no ones going to watch a game where you can’t even see the field. I went to Wrigley once with a bunch of people. Wrigley is in the middle of a neighborhood and there’s no parking. We drove into a parking lot close to the park and the guy says “you can’t park here.” He was offered $100 per van which meant he would make $300. He said “put these in the window and while you’re at the game I’ll watch your vehicles.” The first few innings I just looked around and marveled at the place I had only seen on TV including the rooftop clubs that lost their suit.
