The nearly three-year legal battle between the Cubs and a nearby Wrigley rooftop business came to a close on Friday when an appellate court sided with the baseball club.

It all started in 2015, when the Cubs putting in a video board that blocked the lucrative view of the right field rooftop.  The owner of that rooftop business accused the Cubs of monopolization, defamation and breach of contract for erecting the video board.

In November 2015, U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Kendall dismissed the federal lawsuit filed against the Cubs earlier that year.

The rooftop management’s legal fight was not over. The owner soon appealed the district court’s ruling.

But on Friday, the 7th Circuit court agreed with the federal court’s ruling and sided with the Cubs, who were represented by Kirkland and Ellis LLP.
