Description

Phoenix Magazine tells the story of an "Arizona's "Erin Brokovich," who "represents herself without any legal training" in a still pending case. The report describes how "in a desperate struggle to reclaim her century-old bungalow, Lauren LaBarre is suing the bank she claims defrauded her into foreclosure." The story reveals that the mortgage company refused to accept LaBarre's money, thus forcing her into foreclosure. The report also details how the bank was "blaming LaBarre for its own mistakes - the typographical error and the payments they'd lost." The author draws the conclusion that this might happen to "anyone who's paying a mortgage and is late on a payment now and then."
