A statue that became the focus of a fight between a South Side university and a state lawmaker is back with its rightful owner.Chicago representative Monique Davis returned the 'Defiance' statue to Chicago State University Friday.

The university paid $25,000 in 2004 for the statue of an African slave woman. It ended up in a warehouse, then in Davis's office.

Davis claims she was protecting the statue.

Chicago State will now display "defiance" in the university library.
