Zoning dispute dismissed for lack of jurisdiction

Parvati Corp. v. City of Oak Forest, 09-1107, concerned a challenge to the district court's denial of plaintiff's Rule 60(b) for postjudgment relief and Rule 59(e) motion for reconsideration, in plaintiff's zoning dispute with a city over a hotel that plaintiff owned but wanted to sell.  In vacating the judgment, the court remanded the matter with instructions to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction, because plaintiff chose to accept its loss on the administrative review claim, dismissed its claims for damages, and permitted final judgment to be entered on the merits of the zoning challenge, and because now plaintiff no longer owns the property at issue, plaintiff lacks standing to reopen the judgment on that claim.
