NYC couple who split house with wall get divorce
April 28, 2011
A feuding New York City couple who built a wall through their house, because neither one would give it up, has finally been granted a divorce.
A judge had ordered Simon and Chana Taub to build the wall in their brownstone, because both refused to move.
At the time, New York state didn't allow the speedy dissolution of a marriage without proof that one spouse was at fault, and neither of the Taubs would admit to fault.
The couple filed for divorce in 2005, but a jury rejected it.
The judge on Wednesday also ordered the Taubs to sell their brownstone and two other homes and divide the proceeds.
Simon Taub's lawyer said his client was happy with the decision. Chana Taub told the Media she would appeal.
