CHICAGO -- The Cubs and the owners of two rooftop businesses faced off in federal court Monday, in a dispute over the renovation of Wrigley Field.
Skybox on Sheffield and Lakeview Baseball Club are trying to stop the Cubs from installing a new videoboard and signs above right field that could block their views.
The Cubs plan to have the new signage up by opening day on April 5.
Both sides made their opening arguments today.
They were in court last month as the rooftop owners requested a temporary restraining order to stop construction immediately.
But U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall failed to prove their businesses would destroyed if the signs go up.
In their lawsuit, the rooftop businesses say the new signs are prohibited by their contract with the Cubs.
But the Cubs say the signs are an expansion of the ballpark, which is allowed under the contract.
