On Wednesday, Teresa Jameson, 69, was evicted in Las Vegas Justice Court. Her landlord, Brad Bailey said he was facing foreclosure and selling the property.  Jameson said there are issues with the landlord and asked for more time.

"You've had a lot of time and I understand completely it's hard to find a place and maybe next to impossible," Hearing Master David Brown said.  He referenced action initiated by Bailey four months ago.  He ordered Jameson and two others living in the property to leave by October 19th.

"I just don't think it's fair," Jameson said.

The I-Team visited Jameson at the mobile home in the Sunrise Manor neighborhood the day after she was evicted. ... Read More
