Judge dismisses heliport lawsuit

A Cook County judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a Streeterville community group that wanted to block a heliport at the new Children's Hospital.

The Streeterville Organization of Active Residents actually requested that the suit be dismissed.

There is no indication what led the group to make that request.

Since it was proposed, the helipad drew criticism from neighbors of the new hospital in the Streetersville community, who were concerned about noise and safety.
