Does this qualify as Elderly Abuse?

If you ruin the lives of a couple of old people by screwing them out of their house with a clerical error, shouldn't you be responsible for fixing it?

At the very least, you're obligated to douse yourself in gasoline and strike a damn match.

Quite frankly (Appologies to AD) this is SOP in LA.

Since the sale was nullified, the land company needs to sue whomever they bought it from, or the sheriff's office, but they need to let those poor people alone and get on with their lives. Personally, I think it is the sheriff's office that needs to make reparations. IMMEDIATELY. But that' sjust from teh voice of a person who believes in honesty and integrity and stuff.

You'd think so, but that would mean accepting responsibility for their mistake.

My heart goes out to them. It is ridiculous that this kind of thing could happen!

Elder Abuse is difficult to spot, however when it is found it should be heavily punished!! Families put faith in people to look after the older relatives and people tackle advantage of the persons frail nature and trust put in them by the family! if someone is found guilty of elder abusethey should punishable in the same fashion a doctor is for medical negligence, however it should be remembered that elderly abuse is intentional and maliciously carried out!
