On Feb. 14, a federal judge will decide whether the lawsuit brought by the formerly unknown, unrepresentative North Side group Protect Our Parks can proceed. The suit attempts to prevent the Obama Presidential Center from being built in Jackson Park, which they claim would be an illegal use of public land. The group and their accomplices, Jackson Park Watch, Preservation Chicago and the Cultural Landscape Foundation in Washington D.C., say that the OPC is welcome to build anywhere else on the South Side.
