Tenants' claim of conversion by landlord is dismissed

Frank Turner Ministries, Inc., and Mr. and Mrs. Turner sued Bank Of America and numerous other defendants after they participated in the removal of the Turners' personal property from a leasehold after eviction.  The Turners acknowledged that the order of eviction was valid but complained that the property should have been moved to the curbside rather than taking it to a storage facility.  The Court of Appeals upheld the trial judge's determination that safely storing the Plaintiffs' property, rather than leaving it on the lawn, did not constitute wrongful conversion.  Most likely the Turners felt aggrieved by an inability to pay the moving and storage fees in order to recover their property, but that issue was not addressed in the Court's opinion.
