Woman hit with $100K in parking fines at O'Hare, blames ex

A Chicago judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a woman fighting $105,000 in parking fines by blaming an ex-boyfriend for abandoning a car registered to her.

Jennifer Fitzgerald's lawsuit against the city of Chicago and her ex-boyfriend, Brandon Preveau, alleges the $105,000 in unpaid parking tickets were a result of Preveau -- who was the primary driver of the 1999 Chevy Monte Carlo they purchased for $600 in Fitzgerald's name -- abandoning the vehicle in the employee parking lot at at O'Hare International Airport, the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday.

Fitzgerald said she could not retrieve the car from the lot because she does not have access to the employee lot at O'Hare and Preveau was the only one who had keys for the vehicle.

Judge Thomas Allen dismissed the lawsuit Wednesday, saying Fitzgerald's attorney had not done enough to fight the tickets with the city's Administrative Hearings Department. Allen gave Fitzgerald one month to refile the suit, but urged the parties to reach an agreement out of court.

The city said it had offered to resolve the matter for $4,460, which would include $2,000 in parking tickets and penalties Fitzgerald had incurred with a different vehicle, but Fitzgerald refused. Fitzgerald said she refused the offer because Prevau refused to pay a share of the settlement.
