In January 2015, long-time Ellenwood, GA resident Michele Swan, with the support of her neighbors and Occupy Our Homes Atlanta, publically reclaimed her home. Evicted over the holidays by WRI Group, a subsidiary of American Residential Leasing Co., Michele has been locked in a battle with WRI Group to claim the house that has rightfully belonged to her since 2003. Michele won her home in a divorce settlement years ago, and WRI has refused to recognize her as the owner since her name isn’t on the original loan.
