WOMAN SETTLES $105,000 PARKING TICKET BILL
A Chicago woman who racked up more than $105,000 in parking ticket fines has reached a settlement with the city. Jennifer Fitzgerald's lawsuit against the city alleged her ex-boyfriend registered the offending vehicle in her name without permission before abandoning it at an O'Hare International Airport parking lot, where it received 678 parking tickets in two years. Fitzgerald's attorney said the car was not towed for 2 1/2 years and should have been removed far earlier. A judge tossed out Fitzgerald's lawsuit in April and urged the two sides to reach a settlement. Fitzgerald has now agreed to pay a reduced bill of $4,470. Fitzgerald's suspended driver's license will be returned to her when she pays off the fine. Her ex-boyfriend has agreed to contribute $1,600 toward the sum.
