Landlord liable for emotional distress

Interesting case out of MA here where tenant was awarded monetary damages for emotional distress. The gist of the holding is that the landlord decertified the tenant's unit for a Section 8 subsidy without notice to the tenant. When tenant's income decreased she attempted to use Section 8 and found that it was no longer available. Then landlord proceeded with an action for eviction.
