A Grand Forks kidney doctor... who hasn't paid rent at the Aurora Medical Park for almost two years... is facing eviction after a judge's ruling today.

Doctor Khaled Rabadi owes more than 308-thousand dollars in rent, maintenance and late fees on three spaces.

The Aurora Medical Park and the company that manages it filed the lawsuit to evict Rabadi.

In court today Doctor Rabadi's attorney argued whether the management company had the authority to file the suit and accused the Aurora Medical Park of going along with it because the doctor was asking questions about the practices of the governing board.

He also argued that the 7-thousand patients Doctor Rabadi treats would suffer if he was evicted.

Dr. Khaled Rabadi: "we are not going to leave Grand Forks, I have a wonderful team and I have 27 families I am responsible for, and we will do everythign we can to move forward, I am looking at all other options."

The judge ruled Doctor Rabadi has 30 days to pay the delinquent rent or move.

The Medical Park's attorney Greg Thompson says they will try to work with Rabadi, but says paying up is really the only way to get it taken care of.
