Case Summary

1093 REVIEW DENIED The special relationship between tenants in a housing project and the housing authority that operates it could result in a duty on the housing authority to act reasonably to protect tenants from risks resulting from use of the project by criminals who regularly assault tenants; such use by criminals is a dangerous condition for which liability may be imposed on a public entity; a plaintiff who witnessed a fire in which members of his family were killed may recover for resulting emotional distress even though he did not see the family members being burned; a public entity's callous and systematic disregard for the safety of persons who rely on it for protection might be actionable under the federal Civil Rights Act as an invasion of a liberty interest; a government tort claim arises when the damage occurs and may include acts, whenever committed, that led to damage within the statutorily specified period (i.e., six months) prior to filing.
