The act or process of legally dispossessing a person of land or rental property.” 
“(16c.) 1. The wrongful dispossession or exclusion of someone from property. 2. Removal from a position of power; especially, the removal of a public or corporate officer from office.”
Types of Wrongful Evictions:
Constructive Eviction – a landlord’s act of making premises unfit for occupancy, often with the result that the tenant is compelled to leave.
Retaliatory Eviction – a nearly always illegal eviction that is commenced in response to a tenant’s complaints or involvement in activities with which the landlord disapproves of.
