It would be overturned in another court, if the judge is idiotic. No one has that authority. You would cease and desist from following unlawful decisions, laws, or orders from any psychopaths, because upholding anything of this nature is a crime.

Agreed the fine is ridiculous, and he should have the right to smoke in his own home.

Just as you have the right to not have unwanted smoke in your home.

Nothing is set in stone yet, the man has not been billed for 500k, they are just asking to stop in the meantime till it gets figured out.
So before we go on about how this is the end of the world, let the courts do their role.



It's not a fine, it's how much his neighbors are SUIING him for! Absolutely insanity! They want an easy payday! Let's be honest!

Well nothing is final yet, your cleaning supplies example is better then the baby one and in that case I would say you would have a right to ask them to stop using so much, you have a right to breath in your home.


The baby one is to different cause, well cause we are dealing with a human being being the problem not vapors/smoke.

I get your point tho, I get the negative ramifications people are talking about.

At this point though, we just have a temporary injunction, nothing final.

Do you just refuse to read where I say it is ridiculous to ask for the money?
Or that he hasn't been billed?

No you mentioned it was a fine, I was clarifying it for you and mentioning it was NOT a fine.

I think we all might have to relearn how to bend a bit in how we live amongst each other. Things like this used to never be a problem. I'm not saying that we should take abuse or stay on dangerous situations just to get along, but I am saying that we have turned a corner somewhere where we feel like our every need, want, and desire trumps everyone else's needs, wants, and desires.

It's not just this. It's everything compounded.

But I hear you... We will just have to see if it holds up and then go from there. No need in acting like Rome is burning just yet.

A responsible parent would patch the freaking hole if its really causing that big of a problem. Though I get the feeling this has more to do with the guy blazing up some loud and the neighbor's kids being able to smell it. No amount of anything can stop the smell of that stuff, and in that case I would just move.

Meh some one forcing some one to pay something is a fine in my book.

A rose by any other name is still a rose, and the amount is still ridiculous and should not be awarded unless they have some damn good evidence showing they need it.
Don't forget there is some lawyer behind that amount that sold them on the idea of going for it.

Pretty simple fix that for some reason was not offered as an option.
1 Plug the hole/leak.
2 Instal an exhaust fan.

..and WTF $500,000..bunch of dramatic BS..people are leaches.

If you have a shared wall and smoke is coming into your house from the neighbors, I don't see how this is a big deal.

I'm a smoker and I would be furious if my neighbors smoke came in my house, especially if I had a child. Smoking inside is disgusting (so is smoking), it smells awful, the smoke settles and lingers, it damages fabric and paint, lowers property value, it's bad for you... I'm fairly sure I read a study about something termed 3rd hand smoke, the remnants that stay in a home or vehicle being just as bad for you as secondhand.

This isn't a guy separated from his neighbors by a yard, he's separated by a wall.

Of course if they patched up the hole in the basement, maybe the problem would go away...

You have a right to smoke in your house, but not if it's negatively impacting someone else. The whole your rights end where mine begin thing springs to mind.

$500,000 is ridiculous, I'm hoping that's just attention getting nonsense and more of a strong arm tactic than actual expected payout.

Of course I don't know the whole backstory, but I would hope most people if asked in a polite way (and would hope the neighbors did this first), would stop smoking inside if the smoke was blowing into a neighbors home. Again, can't they just fix the stupid hole?

What happened to talking to your neighbor? No talking, just going straight to suing?

And that bending could have happened, we probably don't know nearly as much as we should about this.

If it is just out of the blue, sure the neighbors are pricks for going straight to the court.

I totally get what you are saying though, two neighbors should be able to work this out with out the law involved.
But if one party doesn't want to, not saying that is the case, then the other has no choice.

Really my main point is if we are going to take the stance of "my house, my rights" then the other house has the same.

I'd tell them to put that 500,000$ where the sun don't shine lol.

Then i would install a couple floodlights and point it directly at their windows and keep them on all night.

Nabourwars hahahahahha. Who ever is trying to push for these unreasonable charges is no different that a bully.

I would also blare music from 9 AM to 10 PM when loud noise bans come into effect. And i would repeat the process every single day. Oh and i would overwater my yard so it floods their yard too.

There's so many things this family could do to make the *Law warriors* regret their decision. There is so many ways to annoy and legally bother nabours without prosecution it's unbelievable!
.

This family should do all of thee above and also begin construction Early in the morning so the other fams babies can cry and really get on their nerves. Preferably. Build things out of wood and metal just cuz they can.

Oh, And cook A LOT of currie, and leave the windows wide open. The complainer family would quickly put their house up for sale and leave ASAP.

How do we know that is the case?

Who is to say there was no previous conversations.

You would hope fixing the dang hole would put an end to this mess, as well as just talking to your neighbor. It seems we have totally thrown away common sense and gone straight to the lawyers. Sad thing is, IF there is any payday, the lawyers are the ones who'll see any funds, not the neighbors.

So your solution is to act like a jackass, even though having your smoke infiltrating a home with a joined wall is already a jackass move.

These people share a wall. A modicum of respect would go a long way.

Are we all entirely sure the neighbors that are being vilified hadn't already tried this approach? Are we sure that the offending hole isn't in the smokers house, and that a hole on their end hasn't been patched?

I'll agree with throwing away common sense, it seems not too many in this thread are giving theirs any exercise.



Sad thing is, IF there is any payday, the lawyers are the ones who'll see any funds, not the neighbors.


Guessing the exorbitant figure is to get attention and make the people smoking realize they are serious.

Yeah i thought that might be an option. The Article didn't really specify if they lived Above, below or connected to the house beside them. I would of smoked outside had the situation been a connected dorm or smoked upside out the window * hardly a difference from outside honestly* But also Charging someone 500,000 is beyond jackass and is borderline scrooge.

I'd Go robin hood on such an individual.

Be like OH you wanna charge me half a million dollars. Well then. Let the games begin bucko.


SInce it's a connected dorm i'd change my strategy a bit. I'd crank the base all they way up and play dubstep. The most annoying music that goes BOOM around. And lot's of rap. The whole house would be shaking under my fury.
