Taking a move from the financial predators some squatters have used a novel approach to preclude eviction. They have filed a restraining order against the real estate agent to keep her from harassing them.
I understand that some here will get their panties in a wad over this but I do find this move to be hilarious. With major corporations like Monsanto bankrupting farmers for their own amusement it is refreshing to see the law being wielded by the people as well.
As many as three people have been living in the Concord home since December. Even though the owner never gave them permission to move in, they're apparently not moving out without a fight.
Real estate agent Melissa Case said she can't get too close to the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home she's listed for sale in Antioch because the unauthorized residents took her to court.
"I have a temporary restraining order against me right now," Case said. "I cannot come within 50 yards of the home, which was filed by the squatters."
