(Crain's) — Chicago's landmarks ordinance got a boost Wednesday when a Cook County judge dismissed claims that the law is unconstitutionally vague.
In a 27-page ruling, Judge Sophia Hall sided with
the city, frustrating a six-year campaign by landmarking opponents to
nullify two landmark districts on the city's North Side.
the legal battle over the landmarks law, which allows the city to
designate properties and areas as historically significant enough to
prevent their demolition, isn't over yet. Thomas Ramsdell, the attorney
for the plaintiffs, real estate executive Albert Hanna and broker Carol
M. Mrowka, is vowing an appeal.
"We're disappointed in her
ruling. The most I can say is we strongly disagree with her reading and
interpretation of the binding Illinois appellate court decision of
2009," says Mr. Ramsdell, a partner in the Chicago office of Royal Oak,
Mich.-based Howard & Howard PLLC.
A spokesman for the
Department of Law says in an email that the city is pleased with the
ruling. The city is the primary defendant in the case.
How about a really expensive Chicago house? The White House in Chicago for $44,000,000. See this article:
