Monique White is facing eviction from her foreclosed home after missing just two payments when she lost her job as a social worker because of budget cuts. Suddenly, Monique had to rely on a much smaller income to feed her family. After Monique took action with Occupy Homes MN, her story gained enough attention that Representative Keith Ellison spoke out on Monique's behalf and the state Attorney General asked US Bank to halt the eviction so that the state could investigate further. The bank and Freddie Mac have refused the request.
Some small but good news came on Monday, March 5th, the day that was Monique was scheduled to appear in court to face eviction. The court has moved the court date to Friday, March 9th.
Today, Monique goes to court to take on Freddie Mac. Monique will have the backing of a Minnesota State Representative presenting her case to the judge today and this case could have significant in the ongoing battle between homeowners and big banks.
