The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to hear an appeal by the nation’s biggest foreclosure lender over a federal judge’s ruling that states can’t stop a judge from approving a foreclosure sale.
The justices heard oral arguments in a case that challenges a federal law that gives judges authority to approve foreclosure sales.
The court will decide whether to take the case, which could have implications for millions of Americans whose homes have been foreclosed.
The U.N. refugee agency says more than 3.6 million people in the United States have been homeless, many of them women, children and the elderly.
The U-N says nearly 10 million people have been living in poverty.
