    A disabled man living in subsidized housing is suing his Grand Rapids apartment complex, saying he is being wrongfully evicted because jugs of urine set on his seventh-floor balcony leaked, generating complaints from a ground-floor tenant. The man, who is obese and can't reach the bathroom in time, routinely urinates in jugs and sets them on the balcony of Grandview Apartments on Bridge Street NW, according to the lawsuit filed this week in federal court. . . . Hamblin's 34-year-old son has offered to help with housekeeping, but was banned from setting foot on complex grounds due to a 2010...

    If you're interested in whether rent control makes rent prices go down — and plenty of people think it actually makes them go up — then stop what you're doing and watch this video on San Francisco's real-estate war, by my colleague Andrew Stern. The video features a heartbreaking interview with artist David Brenkus, who has lived in a rent-controlled apartment on Walter Street for 34 years.

    An outpouring of criticism combined with threats to the coalition government followed the eviction on Friday morning of 200 Jews from two buildings in Hevron, which they purchased in full from an Arab buyer and took residence of on Thursday. Immigrant Absorption Minister Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) demanded that the Security Cabinet be convened on the matter, and condemned Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud) for the decision. Sources close to Ya'alon said Thursday that the purchase did not receive required political approval. "It cannot be that we speak about collective responsibility of all the ministers, and in practice one minister decides...

    The Amish may have a reputation for raising barns lightning-fast, but this project has taken 10 years. It has taken that long for members of the Old Order Amish who want to build homes in Eau Claire County to complete the permitting process. The county refused to accommodate to their religious beliefs. Members of the Old Order strictly adhere to Amish religious and cultural traditions, and they reject electric appliances, modern plumbing and other innovations. The county welcomed the Amish when they first began settling in Eau Claire in the 1970s. Bridge Creek officials say that if the Amish hadnt...

    Towns and cities across Germany are struggling to find accommodation for the tens of thousands of refugees streaming into the country. A woman in Germany is being evicted from her home of 23 years to make way for asylum-seekers, in the second such case to emerge. Gabrielle Keller has been given until the end of the year to leave her flat in the small southern town of Eschbach, near the border with France. The flat belongs to the local municipality, which says it is needed to house refugees. I think its a scandal to throw tenants out of their apartments,...

    Playing with fire--In the name of progressive ideology A 51-year-old German healthcare worker is being evicted from her apartment in which she lived for 16 years in order to make room for the Muslim refugees from Syria and other war-torn Islamic nations, with refugee camps and facilities already full throughout German, according to the European news media. The German woman is being removed from her legal dwelling to make way for mostly Muslim Syrians who are being treated as asylum-seekers with little or no background checks of those who are flooding European Union (EU) countries and eventually the United States....

    Donald Rennie, who co-owns the business next door, said he returned to work from a Bahamas vacation Monday to find the ocean had practically followed him home. About 2 inches of water had seeped into the carpet and onto the furniture from the neighboring storefront, Rennie said. "I opened the door and smelled a horrible smell. My feet were actually squishing in the carpet from the amount of water that was in here," Rennie said. "All of that water seeped in over here and it was just a mess." Police are still trying to track down the woman who owned...

    FAIRCHILD, Wis. (WEAU) - An Amish family in Fairchild now has a sign on their home ordering them to leave. The court order for Amos and Vera Borntreger, along with their four young children, is for violating Eau Claire County building codes. The family claims those codes go against their religious beliefs. The county put up the sign, Thursday, around noon. The penalty for not obeying that sign by leaving their home could be $2,000 dollars for every day they stay or jail time. A group of about ten from the Amish community were gathered when the county delivered the...

Superior Court Judge Katherine Bacal ruled in favor of UCSD after a bench trial.

    Arutz Sheva was at the scene as hundreds of concerned Jews gathered on Tuesday in the Samaria town of Givat Assaf, located north of Jerusalem near Beit El, to join in a prayer rally to save the community from destruction. The far-left group Peace Now seven years ago petitioned for the town's destruction claiming it was built on Arab-owned land; residents argue it was not privately owned and therefore can easily be recognized as state land, adding that nearly all of the land was purchased and legally registered by residents in the state land registry. In a court discussion on...

    In an act of patriotism this Fourth of July, a pair of business executives has paid the fines for a Florida veteran who faced foreclosure for displaying a small American flag in a flower pot on his front stoop. The two senior executives for Los Angeles-based Lear Capital had read the story of 73-year-old Larry Murphree, of Jacksonville, whose homeowners association at Tides Condominium at Sweetwater began hitting him with fines of $100 a day last year for violating his homeowners associations flag display rules, and have offered to pay the bill which has climbed into the thousands.

    A court on Tuesday ordered the state to pay compensation to local Arabs over their claims of having owned land in the Jewish community of Amona, located to the north of Jerusalem. The six Arab claimants were given a total of 300,000 shekels ($85,700), and further the court ordered that if the Jewish residents of the town on the land claimed by the Arab side are not removed by 2015, the state must pay another 48,000 shekels ($13,500), reports AFP. The extreme left legal group Yesh Din praised the ruling, saying "now what is required is evacuation and we're going...

    Public housing tenant Concetta Passione turned 100 Saturday. She got a beautiful birthday cake, and a big party with her two sons. Plus, an eviction notice from NYCHA. The city Housing Authority claims she is not the true tenant of a one-bedroom in Rutgers Houses on the Lower East Side, though she insists she has lived there since 1964. Convinced that she has secretly resided for years in Italy and that her 73-year-old son, Sebastian, unlawfully moved into her apartment, NYCHA sent her a breach of rules notice on Nov. 1 to terminate her lease. She admits she takes trips...

    In an outdoor caf, wearing jeans and his trademark black T-shirt, Finance Minister Yair Lapid gave his first interview to foreign press since taking office. Lapid has embarked on a media blitz, deploying his telegenic good looks and sound-bite savvy, the newspaper observed. In the interview, Lapid acknowledged that thousands of settlers would someday be uprooted, something he called heartbreaking. The interview itself revolved mainly around the stalemated negotiations with the Palestinians, but also on the future aspirations of the Yesh Atid chairman. Lapid told the NYT that he is still hoping to succeed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but clarified:...

    Dozens of youths who stayed at the Oz Tzion outpost near Beit El over the Sabbath, left the community after the Saturday evening havdala prayer. The youths spent the Sabbath at the outpost along with Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, the Rabbi of Tzfat, and Rabbi Dov Lior of Kiryat Arba. The two rabbis had driven to nearby Ofra Friday, to negotiate an agreement according to which security forces would stop trying to evict the youths, and the youths would leave voluntarily at the Sabbath's end. The IDF was forced to stop an eviction from a Shomron outpost on Friday afternoon when...
