Judge Rules that Talking to Yourself Is Not a Nuisance

After a hearing in Manhattan Housing Court conducted by MFY attorney Jason Blumberg  on behalf of an elderly tenant with disabilities, a  Judge held that “Not every annoyance is a nuisance…” and denied the landlord’s petition to evict the tenant.  The tenant, who has lived in the apartment for 43 years, was accused of talking loudly enough for a neighbor to hear.
