A Scottish pensioner facing £50,000 legal costs after attempting to stop Donald Trump building a golf course on her land is taking her case to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
Molly Forbes, 86, of Balmedie, attempted to take the property tycoon and Aberdeenshire Council to court to stop him evicting her from her home and building a £750m gold course on the land.
She was refused legal aid and had to withdraw the challenge, the Press and Journal reports.
Trump's plans were given the go-ahead earlier this year, leaving Forbes with a £50,000 legal bill to pay to Trump.
However, Forbes was given time to challenge the liability, and has now applied for a ruling from the ECHR that, under Article six of the human rights convention, she has been denied access to justice having been refused legal aid.
Forbes told The Sun in October, when she was first presented with the legal bill: "The most [Trump] will be getting from me is 5p a week.
"I have enough to do getting a new washing machine and I have got my electricity bill plus Christmas presents to buy for 12 great-grandkids."
"I only took the council to court but he put his big feet in."
