Woman Fights $100,000 Parking Fine

CHICAGO (April 11, 2013)—Jennifer Fitzgerald of Chicago is trying to get out of paying a parking fine that has snowballed to more than $100,000.

Fitzgerald filed a lawsuit last year against the city over the $105,000 worth of tickets that police piled up on her car, which was left for nearly three years in a parking lot at O'Hare International Airport.

A judge dismissed the lawsuit Wednesday and pressed the parties to try harder to reach a settlement.

Fitzgerald said she should not be held responsible for the fine because her ex-boyfriend abandoned the car in an employee parking lot at the airport.

She said the car is only worth about $600.

The suit also names her former boyfriend.
