Delaware North sues Park Service over Yosemite names

Earlier this year, after Delaware North Companies claimed it owned Yosemite National Park attractions and assets, most people said the claim was bogus.
But after DNC lost the contract to the Park in July, it turned around and filed a lawsuit against the National Park Service to be paid for those names.
The lawsuit was filed earlier this month, and DNC accuses NPS of breach of contract. 
DNC lost the contract for Yosemite concessions to Aramark in July. Last January, when the Yosemite contract went out for bid, DNC claimed in letters sent to Park officials that it owned the names of the places in Yosemite.
But the names of Yosemite landmarks, such as The Ahwahnee, Badger Pass and Curry Village, belong to the American people, not to DNC, the National Park Service countered.
