A woman in Western Pennsylvania had her $280,000 home sold at auction for $116,000 because she had $6.30 in unpaid interest.  A lower court judge made the ruling, but now, that ruling has been overturned by Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt.

Judge Leavitt of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court said that in this case ‘due process’ under U.S and Pennsylvania Constitutions were not satisfied. The $6.30 penalty was added to her tax bill in 2009 and by late 2011, with interest, it grew to $235, the following year the lower court judge ordered the house sold at auction. Even though the house sold two years ago, the woman has lived in the home pending the outcome of this decision.

Needless to say the woman says she’s elated by the courts decision.
