Huge clubhouse, more signs proposed in new Wrigley renovation plans

Federal Judge Virginia Kendall says she will make a ruling Thursday on whether the Cubs should stop installing new signs at Wrigley Field right now.

This comes after the owners of two Wrigley rooftop businesses asked for a temporary restraining order.

That would keep the Cubs from installing the new signs and videoboard until another hearing on the issue next month.

The rooftop owners argue that they can’t sell tickets for their business if the signs go up because they will block their view.

But lawyers for the Cubs argue that they have a right to install the signs and the rooftops can continue to argue their case in the meantime.

This could all play a role in the lawsuit that the rooftop owners have filed.

They say the new signage violates the contract they’ve had with the Cubs since 2004.

The Cubs say the signs are an extension of Wrigley Field, which is allowed under that contract.
