83-year-old Auburn woman filing an appeal to avoid losing her home of over 60 years

An 83-year-old Auburn woman could be forced to sell family land and leave her home of over 60 years.

Corine Woodson could lose her home if the appeal she is in the process of filing to the Alabama Supreme Court fails. In the appeal, she’ll ask for a chance to buy the land outright —among other things —after Lee County District Judge Russell K. Bush ruled that she could not.

The chance to appeal was in doubt for some time as Corine was forced to pay a $3.97 million bond to stay the sale of the property during the appeal. The bond was paid on Nov. 28, meaning the appeal process could truly begin.
