For the win. Via owsnews.org:

Just days after Ruth Murman came to OccupyMN seeking help to win two weeks to move before her home is foreclosed upon, U.S. Bank and GMAC have contacted her to settle the dispute. Ruth had sought legal counsel and asked U.S. Bank to delay the eviction while she makes other arrangements, and until today U.S. Bank had refused to budge. This morning, U.S. Bank and GMAC called Ruth and agreed to give her the two weeks she had requested, and are currently negotiating a payment to help with moving costs.

“I got about 6 calls from U.S. Bank and GMAC yesterday,” explained Ruth. “Its amazing how desperate they were to get in touch with me all of a sudden, after they have ignored my calls and refused to help my father and I for months.”

As an added bonus, jobs were saved. Go read the whole article. She was a small business owner who was in danger of losing her business and putting employees out of work, too.
