Good Evening, I'm Jean Jadhon.

Justice may finally be served at Justice House.
Exactly one year ago the Roanoke building was condemned, forcing dozens of low-income families to move out.
And to this day, questions about its its ownership remain.

Scott Prince has been keeping close tabs on the situation, and has the latest.

Jean, many of us remember the vivid pictures from Justice House last year.
Now a court hearing today might provide the definitive answers into ownership.

RUNS=:50
OUT Q=my part.

(( First the electricity was cut off.
Then the water supply ran dry.
No one stepped up to claim management or ownership responsibilities for Justice House... and so ultimately the city shut it down.
The problem seemingly originated a few years back.
The original owner was the Mennonite Board of Missions.
But the group thought it had sold the property to Justice House tenants in the name of four trustees... one was homeless advocate David Hayden.
But the deal was never finalized because Hayden never signed the deed.
This morning at a court hearing, Hayden said the missing signature was just a mistake on his part.
(/////SOT/////)
SOT 12:18:10
IN Q=The intent

((DAVID HAYDEN/JUSTICE HOUSE CO- FOUNDER: THE INTENT WAS CERTAINLY TO SIGN IT AND TO FILE THE DEED AND TO HAVE THE DEED IN THE NAME OF JUSTICE HOUSE- JUSTICE CHURCH, BECAUSE HISTORY SHOWS WE WENT TO GREAT, GREAT EFFORT TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN. SO THE NON- SIGNATURE OF THE DEED, AT BEST OR WORST, WAS JUST AN OVERSIGHT ON MY PART. ))
RUNS=:15
OUT Q=my part

)) Scott Live/Newsroom
This hearing was initiated by the Mennonite Board of Missions.
Those members hope the court rules the deed was valid... but they also want the property reverted back to them.
double boxes Jean/Scott


That would mean Justice House residents were responsible for their own demise... and the Mennonite Church would be responsible for repairs to the building.
We hope to have a decision in the coming weeks.
