A judge has ruled against a parks-advocacy group’s lawsuit aiming to stop former President Barack Obama’s museum and library from being built in Chicago’s Jackson Park, allowing construction of the center to move forward.

U.S. District Judge John Robert Blakey on Tuesday dismissed the federal lawsuit filed by Protect Our Parks in 2018 against the city of Chicago and its park district.

The article goes on to state the following:

Protect Our Parks’ lawsuit related to the Obama Presidential Center claimed the city was trying to illegally transfer park land to The Obama Foundation, a private entity, by manipulating the approval process to skirt long-standing laws designed to ensure residents had unobstructed access to lakeside parks.

City lawyers said Protect Our Parks misread the law, misrepresented how the approval process played out and exaggerated potential environmental disruptions.

In a separate report, the Chicago SunTimes provided the following details:

In a surprisingly swift decision Tuesday, Blakey tossed a lawsuit filed by the advocacy group Protect Our Parks that has helped to delay the Obama Center. He said there “should be no delay” in construction and ended an hour of arguments with a terse “this case is dismissed.”

    I read a previous article stating Judge’s comments before the hearing that he would not side with the plaintiffs? That’s Biased. I can only believe he is an Obama appointee. Obama is a disgusting POS and taking public park lands instead of finding a place in an already incorporated area just solidifies just what a HUGE POS he truly is.

    Yes, but the Judge is enjoying his new boat, that fancy new car, and all those home improvements.
    This is Chicago, not my kind of town, Chicago is.
