Bensenville homeowners, Chicago skirmish in Cook court over right to sue City Hall for O'Hare air traffic
The legal dogfight between the city of Chicago and dozens of Bensenville homeowners, who say air traffic from O'Hare's busy new runway has demolished their quality of life, has returned to Cook County court, where attorneys for City Hall and the homeowners are now skirmishing over the question of precisely when the homeowners’ problems began.
About a month since a federal judge dismissed its lawsuit against Rabobank for allegedly cornering the bankruptcy banking services market through an alliance with a developer of bankruptcy case management software, a Chicago law firm has reintroduced its allegations, this time in a class action antitrust lawsuit directed at the software maker it alleges has conspired with its competitors to overcharge those depositing bankruptcy funds.
Bensenville residents again claim O'Hare runway noise illegal property taking; Chicago takes case to federal court
A group of Bensenville residents whose homes lie in the flight path of a busy newer runway at O’Hare International Airport have made another attempt at suing the city of Chicago for allegedly demolishing their quality of life by allowing the aircraft to roar past 500 feet or less above their homes almost round the clock.
