A woman whose home had to be demolished after 400 gallons of heating oil were mistakenly pumped into the basement can collect $100,000 for mental distress, the Michigan appeals court said Friday. Beckie Price of DeWitt was forced to temporarily move in with her parents and lacked a permanent place for two years. High Pointe Oil had argued that she wasn’t entitled to sue for non-economic damages, but the appeals court said a house is not just a home.
