The fight between the Chicago Cubs and the rooftop owners is likely to end up in court. The basis for that case would be the contract between the rooftop owners and the team, which takes a cut of the revenue those owners get from allowing people to drink beer and hang out on the roof while looking into Wrigley Field. The Cubs’ renovation plans would, the rooftop owners argue, interfere with the views and thus breach the contract.
That will either be negotiated or litigated. In the meantime, Dave Kaplan of CSNChicago.com — the first one to report on the contents of the contract a couple of months ago — now is the first to publish the actual contract here.
Go check it out so you too can see how people who have conflicting interests yet contractual relationships can find themselves on the brink of war.
