Gyrfalcon: I mean, technically the law is on his side...
morg: Why is the elevator shaft 42 feet taller than the building? Does it house the machinery or something?
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Well you have to work really hard to make that much money. Dude needs his rest!
HBK: You guys know he's not suing for money right? He's suing to ensure that the neighboring building follows its zoning laws.I really don't understand the animus in this thread. Some people have more money than you. Why don't you cry about it?
GoldSpider: So all all buildings being built near this entitled farkstick must not be taller than his penthouse? And he thinks he should be allowed to dictate that??
EngineerAU: Lord Jubjub: I really don't wish to bring the French Revolution into this thread. I'll leave before I do.It might take a good while but eventually the "Second Amendment solution" guys will figure out who it is that's really been screwing them over. Once that dam bursts, it's going to be chaos. Bloody bloody chaos./Probably not until long after the sheriff isn't near
Slives: Do we have a new leader the 'most punchable face' contest?
Insatiable Jesus: If he were strung up on the antenna on the building's roof, that would be a pretty good view.
tenpoundsofcheese: fta: the elevator shaft...rises to 162 feet - beyond the area's 120-foot limit.so yeah, he is in the right on this one.stop with the class warfare.
angrycrank: Day one of nuisance law: if you buy a property for the view, you better buy the view as well.He might have a case on the zoning regs (and that "permanent and irreparable harm" bit is what you have to spew at the court to get them to actually issue an injunction against a project rather that allowing it to go ahead while te issue's being litigated and have them pay compensation later if it's found to cause damage.) But damn, what an asshole.
palelizard: Hey, ease off. This could literally be a deal with the Devil thing. Once his view gets obstructed for too long, his soul could finally be forfeit.
He is technically correct, which is the best kind of correct.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Couldn't he buy the building himself? I've heard of homeowners doing that in neighborhoods.
BradleyUffner: Wait, he paid for a 360 degree view of the city skyline. Isn't the top of the neighboring building part of the skyline?
