Woman may lose condo because of hoarding

A Nashville condominium owner likely will be forced out of an upscale high-rise after losing a lawsuit that claimed she was hoarding and living in filth. The Tennessee Court of Appeals has upheld a judge's decision to order the condo sold and the proceeds used to pay $116,000 in legal fees to the Windsor Towers homeowner's association.

The 59-year-old condo owner, Stacy Harris, says she is not a hoarder.

The case originated when neighbors complained of a foul smell and escalated into condo managers pushing Harris to have it cleaned.

Workers at the condo testified the odor made them gag, while court records show waste from the unit filled a commercial-sized trash bin three times.

The case went to court after the smell persisted and Harris refused to allow another cleaning.
