Sharon Green, a 70-year-old Glendora homeless woman who waged and the management of her former Heritage Oaks apartment, may soon finally find more permanent housing.
The Supreme Court declined the city’s request Wednesday t, which declared Green’s eviction from her rental subsidy at Heritage Oaks illegal.
Publishing the case would have created a precedent for future cases, but in June, the city requested to depublish the case. , a joint enterprise with the city, was developed under the city’s now disbanded Redevelopment Agency. According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the city, which always claimed no involvement in Green’s eviction, challenged its current role in the case since the dissolution of its Redevelopment Agency.
If the court had granted the city’s request, a review of the case would have delayed Green’s return to Heritage Oaks for up to two years.
Green, 70, claims she has been homeless since her 2010 eviction, living at one point in a tent in the San Bernardino mountains. She says she is now living in a motel.
“[The city] wanted the case depublished so it will not set a precedent nationwide,” claims Green. “You cannot evict people receiving subsidies for no reason. That is what my case did. It set a precedent. To get it depublished, no more precedent.”
The city is now awaiting judgement from the Superior Court, according to the Tribune.
