FED'N OF ADVER. INDUS. REPRESENTATIVES, INC. v. CITY OF CHICAGO, 02-1909

Repeal of a city ordinance regulating placement of alcohol and cigarette advertising rendered an ongoing case and controversy moot where the repeal was not disingenuous. Plaintiff was not a "prevailing party" entitled to attorneys' fees under 42 U.S.C. section 1988.
