George Lucas Slaps Lawsuit on Chicago’s Skywalker

By Kaitlin Madden 

Chicago-based outdoor advertising agency Skywalker is about to get the lightsaber laid to ’em to by venerable filmmaker (and wookie creator) George Lucas. Lucasfilms Ltd. slapped Skywalker Outdoor with a trademark-infringement suit, claiming the ad-firm promised to stop using the name “Skywalker”, which Lucas trademarked for ‘Star Wars’, by December 2008. Skywalker Outdoor CEO Michael Richards claims to have no knowledge of the promise.

Speaking of Star Wars, No Wukkas (yes, wookie, I know).
