Brentwood Widow Faces Eviction

Injunction filed to prevent the eviction of Dorthy Green

By Sam Catanzaro

An injunction has been filed to prevent the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department from evicting an 88-year old widow from her Brentwood home of more than a decade.

On Monday, January 13 attorney Larry J. Caldwell asked the Los Angeles Superior Court to issue a Preliminary Injunction barring the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD) from evicting 88-year old widow Dorothy Green from her Brentwood home of 13 years.

Green’s doctor is of the opinion that the eviction is likely to cause serious and potentially fatal harm to her mental and physical health, and her attorney, Caldwell, contends the eviction is illegal.

In a Declaration filed in court, Dorothy’s primary doctor, Alex Gold, M.D., has strongly recommended against the eviction, on medical grounds, because “putting Dorothy through the trauma of being evicted from her home now, or in the foreseeable future, will place Dorothy at probable risk of serious harm to her mental and physical health – that could possibly be fatal,” said Green’s primary doctor Alex Gold in a Declaration filed in court.

Attorneys for Green say her only income is a monthly social security check. In addition, they say she cannot afford to get another home or to pay for the cost of moving a lifetime of possessions.

“The eviction is illegal because Dorothy was not accorded her constitutionally guaranteed due process rights, including her right to a jury trial,” Caldwell said. “It will be barbaric if the LASD kicks an octogenarian woman out of her own home based upon an invalid Writ of Possession — potentially resulting in a death sentence for her.”
