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.
