I’m going through an unlawful eviction. I had been out of work for 3 weeks because two of my children had Covid-19, and my rent was 14 days late when I came out of quarantine. I went to pay it, and they said that the eviction had already been filed and locked us out on March 17th at 10:30 am, Wednesday morning. He and the civil court and my lawyer all received the moratorium form, and it was certified by the courts, but since a judge didn’t sign it, they said it didn’t really mean anything. He has people under his thumb at the courts, as well as the city and other organizations through Gaston county. I’m a single mother of 6, and I work hard and pay my taxes just like any other abiding citizen. It’s like cause the color of my skin, everything was stripped away from me. He has done 12 families in total this way during the pandemic, and I have proof. My bathroom was mildewed, the windows didn’t close, no thermostat for gas to heat the home. I have pictures. I just want justice.
