Chicago Woman Files Lawsuit Against Lincoln Towing
Recently, a woman who parked her vehicle in a lot near Halsted and Grand, came back to find it was gone–towed by Lincoln Towing.
The problem is, the woman had a sticker that allowed her to park there.
The property owner, the only person allowed to call the towing company to have a vehicle removed from the lot had not done so. He called the company, told them they had screwed up and demanded they return the vehicle.
Lincoln told him to pound sand.
Ultimately, the car owner paid the $200 to get her car back.
But now she wants justice and has hired an attorney to file a lawsuit.
Now, in an odd coincidence, after the lawsuit was filed, the tow company is eager to refund the woman’s $200.
Here’s CBS 2′s full story, “Woman Sues Towing Company For Wrongly Seizing Her Car.”
Just for fun, here’s a video of the Steve Goodman song that made Lincoln Towing famous.
