The wise judge

Louis is very frum and has just moved into an expensive apartment on the 5th floor of a high rise block of flats in Manhattan. But when he builds a succah on his balcony, all trouble breaks loose. His non-Jewish neighbours claim that his succah is so ugly and so visible from the street below that the values of their apartments are being negatively affected by it. So they take him to court and the case is heard in front of Judge Goldbloom just one day before the start of the 8 day festival of Succoth. Those who know Judge Goldbloom say he is a very wise man.

Louis is very worried that if he loses the case and he’s asked to remove his succah, he won’t have time to make alternative arrangements.

After hearing both sides’ arguments, Judge Goldbloom looks at Louis and says, "I’m surprised at you. You’re living in an expensive block of flats and it’s therefore expected of you to maintain a high standard of external building work. You had no right to put up such an eyesore on this lovely block of flats without obtaining a suitable building permit. I must therefore rule that either you remove the succah or else I will have no option but to fine you $1000. You have exactly eight days, starting from tomorrow, to remove it. Next case!"
