Judge allows Wayne County foreclosure auctions to go on
Wayne County’s tax foreclosure auctions will continue in light of a judge’s ruling today in a class-action lawsuit the ACLU of Michigan brought this summer to address Detroit’s foreclosure crisis.
Wayne County Treasurer Eric Sabree, who was named as a defendant in the lawsuit, said he was pleased with the ruling from Wayne County Circuit Chief Judge Robert Colombo Jr. on a motion from the ACLU to halt the auctions.
“The judge’s ruling will allow the Wayne County Treasurer’s office to move forward as mandated and authorized by state law to auction homes for unpaid property taxes,” Sabree said in a statement released this afternoon.
