CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have asked for the city's permission to put a 650-square-foot sign at Wrigley Field that may partially block the views of the action on the field from rooftops across the street.
The rooftop owners have said they will file a lawsuit if the Cubs put up anything that cuts into their views.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1dJErXA ) the Cubs filed a permit application on Friday after talks with the rooftop owners fell apart.
Ryan McLaughlin of the Wrigleyville Rooftops Association said the rooftop owners assembled a legal team "some time ago" in preparation for a court fight with the team.
Cubs spokesman Julian Green says since issues with the rooftop owners couldn't be resolved the team is going forward with its right to put up the sign.
