Chicago to Review Woman's $105,000 Parking Ticket Bill

In December 2009, Fitzgerald said she started receiving notices about the tickets and, unable to move the car since it was in a secure airport lot, she pleaded with her ex-boyfriend to move it. According to the lawsuit, on "occasions too numerous to list... Jennifer and members of Jennifer's family have asked Brandon to move the [automobile]."

Fitzgerald eventually was hit with a fine of more than $105,000, landed on the city's Department of Revenue "Top 100 Scofflaw List," and was told that she might have her driver's license revoked.

According to the lawsuit, Fitzgerald believes United and the city of Chicago should have towed the car and junked it back in November 2009, rather than continuing to ticket it.

A spokesperson for United Airlines sought to discredit Fitzgerald's lawsuit. "United believes the suit against us is entirely without merit," said United's Christen David.
