Occupy Fights Foreclosures helps Widowed Mother of Severely Disabled Daughter Fight BofA
Los Angeles – On Friday, David Redy— a partner at Redy & Smith— called Dirma Rodriguez, a widowed mother with a severely disabled daughter and 4 sons, who says she was fraudulently foreclosed upon by Bank of America. Allegedly during the conversation, Redy— who represents the bank— threatened Carlos Marroquin, a homeowners’ advocate and Occupy activist, who helped get the family back into their home after an eviction in late march.
Mrs. Rodriguez asserts that in addition to the threat against Marroquin, Redy used high-pressure tactics to get her sign away her Rights.

Dirma Rodriguez had five minutes to gather her things and vacate the West Adams house she and her severely disabled daughter had lived in for more than 25 years.
As a property manager changed the locks, Rodriguez fluttered back and forth from the yard — where a pile of stuff lay by the kitchen stove — to her car, where her daughter, Ingrid Ortiz, sat screaming and crying.
How Rodriguez and Ortiz ended up in this predicament is a long, messy story that resounds with a misery all too common in this age of foreclosure.
EMERGENCY EVICTION: Sheriff's Deputies came to try to evict a mother with a disabled child now for a fraudulent foreclosure at 2759 Rimpau Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016. Please come out and help save their home!
