    A New Jersey man who once lived in a waterfront home at the Jersey Shore now lives in a teepee made of plastic tarpaulins in muddy, mosquito-infested woods.

    Doug Hardman is suing a volunteer with a homeless assistance program, and a real estate company, alleging they cheated him out of his Bayville home, selling it without giving him a penny.

    The once successful carpenter now lives in Tent City, the encampment of homeless people in the woods of Lakewood.

    His lawsuit accuses the housing director of an anti-poverty agency with forging his name on a document transferring ownership of his house. The director maintains Hardman turned over the house of his own free will.
