On Tuesday, 103-year-old Vinia Hall and her 83-year-old daughter Vita Lee were due to be evicted from their Atlanta home of 53 years. After arriving and seeing Hall and Lee the movers and sheriff’s deputies showed compassion by refusing the bank’s request for eviction. They left the ladies in their home. Lee had to be hospitalized as a result of the ordeal.
Following the public outcry in support of the women, “Chase Bank, which services the loan on t that’s owned by Deutsche Bank now said it has no plans to evict Hall or her daughter.” The bank. Instead the bank insist that they will work out an arrangement with the family so they can keep the home.
The women had been engaged in a long legal battle with Deutsche Bank, the financial giant accused of widespread mortgage fraud by the U.S. government earlier this year. The German owned bank is the focus of a $1 billion lawsuit filed by the Justice Department. In November, Deutsche Bank paid $165 million to settle a suit claiming that it had misled credit unions about the risk of securities tied to mortgages.
The bank issued an eviction notice for Hall & Lee, who had lived in the Northwest Atlanta home for 53 years.
Hopefully there will be some top notch Attorney’s working Pro-Bono on behalf of the ladies to make sure that the arrangement is indeed fair to the ladies. Further they may want to see why the ladies were subjected to eviction.
