Officials in Marin County, Calif., are scrambling to sway filmmaker George Lucas, who recently pulled the plug on a digital movie-making complex after residents of the Lucas Valley Estates HOA cried foul. The county says it's prepared to offer Lucasfilm its legal support if the HOA should file a lawsuit. "[The county's Board of Supervisors] appeared to be unanimously prepared to approve the project," delaying only after last-minute environmental concerns were raised, county Supervisor Steve Kinsey says. "... Our board could join with Lucasfilm in a robust defense of any litigation that might occur following board approval."
