CHICAGO — Two Wrigley Field rooftop businesses want a temporary restraining order to prevent the Chicago Cubs from putting up a video scoreboard and advertising signs that they say would block their views into Wrigley.

The owners asked for the restraining order in a court filing Thursday, saying a federal lawsuit they filed against the Cubs last month would take too long to go to trial before renovations are complete.

Ongoing work at Wrigley would add two video scoreboards and four advertising signs behind new outfield bleachers. Court papers obtained by the Chicago Tribune say a revenue-sharing agreement between the Cubs and rooftop owners forbids the team from blocking rooftop views through 2023.

A spokesman for the Cubs said in an email Friday that the team has no further comment on the restraining order request at this time.
