ELK GROVE, CA - Former Sacramento Monarchs star Ruthie Bolton is fighting to save her home from what she claims is an illegal foreclosure.
Bolton's home was sold at a courthouse auction last month and the trustee's deed was recorded Monday.
In a lawsuit filed in Sacramento County Superior Court, Bolton claims the lender authorized the auction at the same time as it was working with her on a loan modification.
The process is known as a dual-track foreclosure, which has been against the law in California since January.
Bolton's attorney, Pam Palmieri, said she and Bolton met with the lenders' representatives on Thursday.
"I told them this law was on the books," Palmieri said. "And they basically responded with 'listen, Ruthie, your house is dead.'"
A call to the loan servicer, Carrington Mortgage Services, was not immediately returned.
