83-year-old NH woman awaits court eviction ruling

ALSTEAD, N.H. (AP) - An 83-year-old New Hampshire woman is awaiting a state Supreme Court ruling on whether she can remain in the mobile home she's lived in for 28 years.

Leona Berger's ordeal began in August 2011, when the board of directors of the Well Hill Cooperative trailer park in Alstead raised her rent and made her sign her first lease since moving to the park in 1985.

Board members evicted her last year. They said they wanted to sell her two-bedroom trailer but wouldn't give Berger a chance to buy it.

Berger lost an appeal at the district court level. Her daughter Shelley Crosby has no legal training but argued her mother's appeal to the state's highest court in November.

The justices didn't say when they would rule.
