The article presents an argument put forward by city lawyers of Chicago, Illinois, in court documents filed with U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Eugene Wedoff in response to airlines company United Airlines Inc.' request that the court issue a declaratory judgment preventing the city from evicting the airline. The argument holds that the airlines company has no grounds to ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to strip Chicago of its ability to evict it from its facilities at O' Hare International Airport in Chicago for failing to make payments on its special facilities revenue bonds� because the city hasn't threatened to take such action.
