Hinds County Court Judge Larita Cooper-Stokes ordered the eviction of attorney Isaac Byrd from his home on 14 E. Hill Drive in Jackson in April. Bank of America filed suit against Mr. Byrd in July 2014. The bank foreclosed on the home on January 7, 2014 at a sale on the courthouse steps. Hinds County deputies and several moving vans appeared at the home on June 30.
Bank of America claimed that Mr. Byrd refused to move from the home. It sent him several notices and finally went to court against Mr. Byrd. Judge Stokes ruled against him on April 7, 2015. She ordered him to vacate the premises by June 8. However, Mr. Byrd apparently did not move out of the home on that date. Bank of America presented the order to the Sheriff's office.
