NRA recovers another $98,000 against Chicago
It's an a supplemental award of attorney fees -- meaning fees for time spent litigating the original award of fees. Chicago opposed the original motion, arguing that since it repealed its handgun ban ordinance after the Supreme Court ruling, but before the trial court filed a judgment striking it down, NRA was not a "prevailing party." Chicago won in the trial court on that argument, but the Seventh Circuit reversed the ruling.
Wish it were 98 million, instead of what we got...

It's no big deal for Chicago (or any city....) - a tiny increase in sales tax or property tax, and no taxpayer will even notice.
