The auction for the old Chicago main post office takes place on Thursday. Developer Roberty Racky filed a lawsuit asking a judge to delay the auction. He wanted more time to go through the thousands of pages of documents. But, on Tuesday, the judged denied his request.

Bidding will start at $300,000.

A government report said the building's annual maintenance cost is more than $2 million.
