Wells Fargo Evicts Terminally-Ill Woman Despite Federal Court Order

by Rick Panna Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 at 3:42 PM

Niko Black, a Native woman (Apache) with terminal cancer, has been evicted from her Garden Grove home by Wells Fargo, with co-operation of the Orange County Sheriff's Department and complicity of the local police. This, despite Niko posting a Federal Court Order forbidding such action on her front door and filing it with local police agencies.

On the morning of October 10, Niko Black was in bed when her front door was kicked open by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Black, who has terminal cancer, crawled to her wheelchair as four-to-six deputies entered and proceeded to hold a gun to her face. She was then taken outside sans any of her medication. When she called the Garden Grove Police, they did nothing. Since all of her medication and other means of treatment were in her home, Black got sick very quickly and had to be taken to the hospital.

Black told the OC Weekly that fraudulent paper work was used to justify the eviction.

Since the eviction, Federal Judge Theodore C. Albert (who signed the court order favoring Black) has ordered Wells Fargo and county representatives to appear in court on November 13 to explain the eviction.

Meanwhile, family, friends, and other supporters of Black are drawing attention to the actions of Wells Fargo and Orange County authorities. Updates are posted on a Facebook page, and a petition is being circulated.

At the time of this writing, Attorney Stephen R. Golden had just agreed to represent Black pro bono.

We need to respond more quickly

by IndyRadio Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 at 8:08 AM

In this scam, like many, the final actor has enough reputation left and the corporate resources to state it's case publicly.

Wells Fargo had their day in court and lost.
Now we see how pervasive the Authority in Orange County is, and it is the authority of the pistol to the head of innocent, unarmed victims.

We can only hope that their will be a huge public turnout at the hearing where these perverts acting under the color of law will come before the bench and explain their recent actions.

I'll post the court date time and location as an event, we have little time to mobilize and must make the best of it.
