A Cook County judge on Friday denied a request from a north side condo association to have a Divvy bike-sharing rack removed from in front of the property.

Residents of the building, located near Addison Street and Pine Grove Avenue, filed the suit on Thursday, arguing they weren't given notice of the bike rack and expressed fears it would devalue the property and be a safety hazard.

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Kathleen Kennedy ruled against the association but gave officials 30 days to come back.

The condo board said they're hopeful the Department of Transportation will work with them to resolve the issue.
