Why not settle suit on parking rules?

The city of Elgin is on its way to spending this amount to defend the city in a lawsuit over parking regulations. An attorney friend of mine estimated the costs to the city, if the case drags on through June, at about $100,000.

What's upsetting is the trial judge when issuing a Temporary Restraining Order against the city, encouraged the city to try and resolve the case out of court. He further stated that litigation is not the best use of government resources in times of economic hardships for municipalities. Does this make any sense to the taxpayers watching all this transpire?
