CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago is getting more competition for the site of the George Lucas Museum.
Officials in Oakland, Calif., have reportedly written to Lucas saying they would welcome the new museum.
A local Chicago group called Friends of the Parks filed a lawsuit to stop the Lucas Museum from being built at the lakefront.
A federal judge ordered the city not to alter the proposed museum site while the lawsuit is pending.
Lucas is considering Los Angeles if Chicago's plan falls through.
