SUPER=03-Roanoke/October 1995;


A little more than a year ago, problems surfaced at the low income apartment building.
Bills weren't getting paid, residents were outraged and eventually they were forced out of their homes after Justice House was condemned.
At that point no one was sure who owned the building.
But through a chancellor's recommendation, a judge decided that the Mennonite Board of Missions has always owned Justice House, even during its demise.
Officials there thought they had shifted the deed over to a couple of Justice House trustees, but that transfer was never finalized according to the court.
