Supreme Court Unanimously Rules in Favor of Minneapolis Woman in a Win for Property Owners
In a recent ruling, the United States Supreme Court sided with a 94-year-old woman who accused the government of stealing her home equity. Geraldine Tyler is a 94-year-old woman who got nothing from the sale of her condominium after the county pocketed the full $40,000 because she owed $15,000 in unpaid taxes and penalties. The court ruled that keeping the additional $25,000 was unconstitutional. The unanimous decision is a win for property owners under the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
