Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said today his office plans to stop serving eviction notices on people who have fallen behind on mortgage payments as well as renters unaware their buildings have fallen in arrears.
He said his action was necessary in light of the national foreclosure crisis that is driving down the American economy.
Dart acknowledged he could be found in contempt of court for ignoring court orders, but said he was willing to risk that to carry out “justice.”
Bump’d up top because this has become the hottest item since I posted this last night.
