I received some good feedback on a news item about a landlord sued by the federal government for not allowing a tenant to use a service animal in a "no dogs" residence. I thought I would share it here:
"Service animals, and under the Federal [Fair] Housing Act, emotional support animals, may be used for a wide variety of disabilities, not simply vision impairment. The landlord should be ready to pay out big damages since a similar case in Michigan resulted in $300k in punitive damages. See Grad v. Royaloak Apts,
http://www.bridges4kids.org/articles/2005/3-05/Freep2-23-05.html. Service animals are not limited to the dog species."
