Di Monte & Lizak Takes on the Chicago Cubs

Tom Lombardo and Abraham Brustein filed suit on behalf of several rooftop businesses which overlook Wrigley Field (the “Rooftops”), against the Chicago Cubs and its Chairman, Thomas Ricketts, in federal court on January 20, 2015. The complaint charges the Cubs with starting to install a jumbotron, video board, and various other large signs that will block the Rooftops and breach a 20-year contract that guarantees the Rooftops an unobstructed view into the ballpark in return for millions of dollars in royalty payments. The Cubs are also accused of demanding that the Rooftops conspire with the Cubs to engage in an illegal price-fixing scheme to raise ticket prices in violation of the Sherman Act, as well as commercial defamation, deceptive business practices and other claims.
