When the law views residents of a home, it sees four categories of people: homeowners, houseguests, tenants or trespassers. Those are the ONLY four kinds of people the law sees.
The cops, who answered the phone from the doughnut shop, tell you she's tenant, but they don't know. They're lazy.
The cops aren't the final arbiters of the law. The court is. And, in this case, the court has determined that this person is NOT a tenant. Therefore, she's NOT. Trying to evict her once the court has determined that she's not evictable, is kind of silly.
She's a trespasser. That's the only thing she can be. That's it. There is no in-between kind of person in the law.
So, that's why ScottGems sage advice was right on. The cops work for the courts. They probably don't think they do, because they have doughnuts swimming around their brains, but they DO. So, as advised, get the ruling in writing, (because the cops are too lazy to call the courthouse), and give it to the Chief of Police, if you can find him, and tell him to do his job!
