John R Taylor Real I*state Company to pay ope dollar
plus one month's rent to tenants served with eviction
notices last week.
Mrs. Samuel Hilton, a resident of Skyline for 26 years,
testified, gi\ing the details of the eviction procedures filed
against her and 47 of her neighbors for late payment
of rent. Several counterclaims were also filed by'Legal
Aid Society attorneys representing the other residents of
Skyline Village for violation of lease agreement.
"Taylor Realtv moved for a dismissal of the eviction
proceedings but was ordered to pay-each resident SI in actual
damages and one month's rent for "further relief."
Taylor Realty was also ordered to pay the costs of the
legal action but since the cases were dropped the company
had already paid the only cost involved.
