Chicago woman fighting $100,000 parking fine

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago woman is trying to get out of paying a parking fine that has snowballed to more than $100,000.

WBBM Radio reports that (http://cbsloc.al/10PoNXv ) Jennifer Fitzgerald filed a lawsuit last year against the city over the $105,000 worth of tickets that police piled up on her car.

The car was left for nearly three years in an O’Hare International Airport parking lot. WBBM says a judge dismissed the lawsuit Wednesday and pressed the parties to try to reach a settlement.

Fitzgerald says she should not be held responsible because her ex-boyfriend abandoned the car in an employee parking lot at the airport. She says the car is worth only about $600. The suit also names her former boyfriend.

The story was first reported by DNAinfo.com.
