After 10 years of renting our home in San Pedro, CA, there came a new buyer to live in the front house while we stood in our back house. Well it was a nightmare since he came to live in the house. We never expected someone could be so ignorant and cruel. He had a drinking problem, which ended up with me getting a restraining order on him. Out of retaliation he evicted us. We had no attorney, but we had our facts in line to go to trial.

We were disappointed by our justice system. The commissioner in Long Beach denied us a jury trial. Sided with the plaintiff. It happened…eviction. Not for not paying our rent either. No protection from nothing. Now my sister and I are separated, sleeping at our children’s houses. The fact that this racist person can get away with this because he has a lawyer to fight? Makes me sick to my stomach. Lord help us all.
