Roof Leak Didn't Cause Harassment or Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
LVT Number: #31111
Rent-stabilized tenant sued landlord, claiming willful refusal to fix a damaged roof and repeated water leaks into her apartment and the adjoining corridor. Tenant claimed that these acts resulted in intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment, nuisance, and breach of the warranty of habitability. Landlord argued that tenant's claims were groundless and asked the court to dismiss the case without trial.
