Why Do These Things Happen?
Judge Issues Order Allowing
Evicted Woman To Return Home
House Can't Be Sold Until Jan. 12

PROVIDENCE -- An 81-year-old
Providence woman evicted from
her home for failing to pay
a sewer bill will be allowed to return
That's after a Superior Court judge
issued a preliminary injunction
Friday on behalf of Madeline Walker.
The order means Walker's Chester
Avenue house can't be sold again
before a hearing on Jan. 12.
Walker was evicted from her home
of 53 years earlier this month. The
house has since changed hands.
The case drew Gov. Don Carcieri's attention,
he found a lawyer to take up the matter.
All of which makes me wonder...
what happens next. First you got the
$500, if they didn't pay it before,
will they pay it now? After all she and
the family knew for 2 years or more.
No one acted on that.
Seems the lawyer for her, thinks
she wasn't mental able to understand
the whole thing. But the thing is, her
daughter did. So have to watch this
to see how it comes out.
Then, also, she got to move back
in her house for Christmas..(I am
sure it must be for the feel good
effect) But first it was Out and
then back In and what happens
if this doesn't come out in her favor..
back Out again? That seems kind of
cruel... and will some one donate the
money? Then, of course, there could be the
person who buys it but lets the elderly
woman stay until she goes to a nursing
home or dies. Interesting.
