90-year-old woman wins eviction case
Eve Ball is going to stay in her home after all.
Local attorney Alex Krase said last week that the 90-year-old resident won her case against Bank of the America and got a court order that will allow her to stay in her home until October of 2015.
“I think it was the right outcome. I’m happy she gets to stay,” said Krase.
Judge Glade Roper made his ruling April 25 and Bank of America had five days in which to appeal. It did not.
“We know it’s final now,” said the young attorney.
Eve Ball has lived in the two-bedroom, one-bathroom home on Road 223 for 11 years. She has three and a half years remaining on her lease, but then got an eviction notice from the large bank.
“It’s quite a relief. She’s pretty excited about it,” said her son, Barry Ball.
