Appeals court upholds judge’s dismissal of condo parking space lawsuit

208 West Washington Street and Bob Porada

A state appeals court upheld a judge’s decision to toss a lawsuit filed by a Loop condo owner who’s fighting his building association over the use of a parking spot.

The City Centre Condominium Association had sued Robert J. Porada, claiming he had leased his parking space in the building at 208 West Washington Street to a nonresident in violation of association rules, according to the Cook County Record.

Porada, an attorney, responded by filing a suit of his own, alleging the association board obstructed his ownership rights and engaged in malicious and reckless conduct against him.

Cook County Judge Laurence Dunford later threw out Porada’s suit, saying it lacked specifics, and he ordered Porada to pay the association’s legal fees.

Earlier this month, a panel of the state’s First District Appellate Court upheld Dunford’s decision to dismiss the lawsuit, but ruled Porada did not have to pay the association’s legal fees.

In her ruling, Justice Joy Cunningham agreed with Dunford that Porada’s allegations were vague, without details or context.
