HIGH POINT, N.C. — High Point City Councilman Foster Douglas filed for bankruptcy late Monday afternoon.
Filing for bankruptcy means his home cannot be auctioned off tomorrow.
The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office had planned to auction off the home to settle a 10 year old debt with the City of High Point totaling $32,000.
The debt dates back to 2002, when Douglas and his brother sued the City of High Point. A judge ruled against the brothers, then ordered them to pay the city’s legal fees.
