Description

On Friday, Star Wars creator George Lucas said he has given up on plans to build a legacy museum in Chicago after a legal battle with local activists. In a statement, Lucas said he will build his museum somewhere in California. Chicago lured Lucas there in 2014, after efforts to build the museum in San Francisco failed. But Chicago's plans soon went awry as well. The Friends of the Parks group sued, saying the city did not have the power to turn over public lands for use by a private institution. Lucas said in a statement "No one benefits from continuing their seemingly unending litigation to protect a parking lot."
