City officials want those buildings for part of a $3.98 million "low-income"
housing project. And they wanted the homesteaders out. They issued vacate orders stating
the buildings were in imminent danger of collapse, a claim Justice Wilk characterized as a
"fraud", meant only to circumvent his stay on the eviction by going to the Appellate Court.
City officials did not wait for a determination by Justice Wilk in Supreme Court or for
rulings on the issue of safety to be argued in Appellate Court in September.
