88-Year Old Widow Asks Court to Block Potentially Fatal Eviction

Caldwell Law Firm - Trial Lawyers

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan 11, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- On Monday, January 13 at 8:30 a.m., attorney Larry J. Caldwell will ask the Los Angeles Superior Court to issue a Preliminary Injunction barring the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department from evicting 88-year old widow Dorothy Green from her Brentwood home of 13 years. Dorothy's doctor is of the opinion that the eviction is likely to cause serious and potentially fatal harm to her mental and physical health, and her attorney, Caldwell, contends the eviction is illegal.

In a Declaration filed in court, Dorothy's primary doctor, Alex Gold, M.D., has strongly recommended against the eviction, on medical grounds, because "putting Dorothy through the trauma of being evicted from her home now, or in the foreseeable future, will place Dorothy at probable risk of serious harm to her mental and physical health - that could possibly be fatal."

Dorothy's only income is her monthly social security check. She cannot afford to get another home, or to pay for the cost of moving a lifetime of cherished possessions -mementos of the many wonderful years she and her late husband of 60 years shared in the home.

According to Dorothy's attorney, Larry J. Caldwell, "the eviction is illegal because Dorothy was not accorded her constitutionally guaranteed due process rights, including her right to a jury trial."

Added Caldwell, "it will be barbaric if the LASD kicks an octogenarian woman out of her own home based upon an invalid Writ of Possession -- potentially resulting in a death sentence for her."

Monday's hearing is in Dept. 67 at Stanley Mosk Courthouse, in Los Angeles Superior Court Case no. 16STPB01322. If not blocked by the court, Dorothy's eviction could be carried out by LASD as soon as 5 p.m. on Monday.
