The Los Angeles Dodgers and LA Metro are continuing on a push to build a gondola system for transportation to and from Dodger games. 

Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and LA Metro have proposed a $300 million project that would take baseball fans from Union Station to Chavez Ravine. Each gondola would carry up to 40 people over Chinatown and Solano Canyon. 

McCourt has already hired a firm to build the system. 

On Monday, a superior court judge sided with McCourt's company and LA Metro, but the nonprofit California Endowment moved to stop the plan. 

According to the local CBS affiliate, California Endowment alleges that LA Metro and McCourt are acting illegally and the project should be put up for a competitive bid. 

Residents in the area have also opposed the project, saying the project raises privacy concerns, as it would travel directly over their homes.
