Portland couple refuses to leave home despite eviction order

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

A Northeast Portland couple is refusing to leave their home even though a judge ordered them out.

It's been almost a year since Debbie and Ron Austin's home went into foreclosure.

Since the housing crisis hit in 2008, Debbie says her husband was diagnosed with cancer and she had to undergo back surgery. They lost one of their incomes, and then she got cancer as well.

While they were going through a loan modification, Debbie Austin says the bank unjustly started the foreclosure process.

She believes it's unfair and she is asking the Sheriff's Department not to remove her from her home.

A judge told the couple they had to be out by Monday, Nov. 5.

There's no word yet on whether the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office is enforcing the judge's order.
