Chicago woman fighting $100,000 parking fine

CHICAGO - 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 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 a parking lot at O'Hare International Airport.

WBBM says a judge dismissed the lawsuit Wednesday and pressed the parties to try harder to reach a settlement.
 
Fitzgerald says 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 says the car is only worth about $600.
 
The suit also names her former boyfriend.
