Protect Our Parks (POP) filed a motion for reconsideration on Friday after the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling in the group’s case against the Obama Presidential Center (OPC). The group had already indicated it would do so a few weeks ago.
POP suffered a blow to its hopes of stopping the construction of the OPC in Jackson Park when the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals remanded its case to district court, ruling that the group did not have standing to bring some state law claims. Now, the nonprofit has filed a motion for reconsideration in front of a full panel of appeals court judges, arguing that the court’s decision deviates from established precedent.
The ban on construction of the OPC continues while the litigation is ongoing, according to a POP press release.
