It wasn't just the couple.
They even hired a ghost expert who was on their side.
Their sense of what they're experiencing I get the 110% I believe exactly what they're saying.

You're costing -- future tenants because this story wound up like -- scored.
And now the People's Court wants to have -- odd then nobody wants here Kimberly that they had.
Complaints somebody called ghost busters but they did.
I don't believe that he has a complaint is yet to prove actual damages that he's tried to rent the property and he's out the money that they would have paid if they had honored the least.
I think they still have somewhat of a case I mean in terms of that they have credible witnesses you -- the last time I did and boy did I have some public emails and comments about it let me -- You had an accident on your side there is precedent in new 1990 -- -- -- exactly declaring I'm recognizing.
Some properties as officially haunted.

Below when doors creaking three being open slamming close unoccupied areas of the house lights on and off about human intervention.
They come home and find their clothes and towels injected from the closets and all over the floors and now even making those allegations.
That can get you sued.
You bet today it doesn't sound like they're living so much for the go with a thousand they're living with a teenager but anyway okay yeah I think -- -- not really that.
This is a great case for People's Court because they're both good and -- Winning some and losing sound but no they aren't they nice and other I think I think they -- and now this hired it -- -- -- the ghost -- -- would -- say you're living with -- Oakmont they need to -- it a little -- had that.
Paranormal investigators said that they believe that the house is inhabited by doesn't get more and they worry very credible the -- -- -- you have fat death.
