WHEN: February 12, 2013
WHY: Obama stated in his State of the Union address: “It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country – the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities,you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you love.” Yet millions of American families are suffering from the inequitable injustice of predatory loans and fraudulent foreclosures that is still not being addressed.

HAPPENING NOW: Hilda's Unlawful Detainer Court (UD) Eviction Trial


Many thanks to Suzanne for her long-term commitment to overseeing helping Hilda fight for her home. It's easy to forget the efforts and contributions of those who do what in many times is the hardest thing: sticking with a task and quietly seeing it through to a just completion. Many thanks for your service and effort, Suzanne, and endless love and soldarity for Hilda.


(The following is from one of our members, Suzanne who is primarily in charge of this case:)

Thank you to all who have supported Hilda's efforts to save her home! Thanks to your support we were able to hire an Unlawful Detainer attorney who has been very, very helpful. Unlawful Detainer court deals with matters of eviction -- it was designed for tenant / landlord issues, but it is unjustly where wrongfully-foreclosed homeowners end up.

Currently at Santa Monica Courthouse, Hilda is going to her trial in UD court.

Yes, we are living in a country that forces a limited-mobility 93-yr-old to go to court to defend herself from predatory criminals who are using their money-power to buy themselves out of jail.

Yesterday, we discovered -- with the help of our attorney and the bankruptcy attorney who referred him to us -- that the bankruptcy judge who granted the bank (Aurora Loans aka Lehman Bros) a "relief from stay" from Hilda's bankruptcy, also ordered that the bank could NOT do a foreclosure sale before July 31, 2012.

The eviction action she faces tomorrow comes out of a foreclosure sale that the bank did -- in violation of Hilda's bankruptcy stay -- on December 6, 2011. This direct violation of the BK judge's order is yet another reason that the foreclosure sale is VOID.

Los Angeles - B of A's lackeys, the L.A.P.D., wrongfully evicted the Corona family Friday, Jan 18th at around noon. Soledad's teenaged daughter, Victoria, was the only one home at the time and they told her she had to leave immediately. This is the SECOND time the Corona family has been evicted during the so-called "Holiday Moratorium" on foreclosures and evictions announced by major banks. The LAPD claimed they were "trespassing" in their own home. One officer allegedly said there was an arrest warrant for Soledad Corona, although they denied this later that evening.
