Hero of the day

Meet Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart who has refused to continue to carry out evictions under the current rules. Sheriff Dart found his staff often being ordered to evict tenants from rented accommodation, even though they had been faithfully paying their rent, when the owner's mortgage was foreclosed. The banks in general made no attempt to notify the tenants when repossession procedures were undertaken and left that to Sheriff Dart and his employees.
