Dispute ended over cemetery land for O'Hare runway
CHICAGO — The city of Chicago has agreed to pay a church $1.3 million for a plot of land that included a historic cemetery but was sought for the expansion of O'Hare International Airport.
This month's settlement ends a five-year legal battle over the land.
Attorney Richard Friedman works for Neal & Leroy, the firm that represented the city. He says a judge was able to get the sides to agree on compensation and avoided taking the issue to trial.
