Judgment of Solomon

BBC NewsSplitting the house on divorce has taken on a whole new meaning for bickering New York couple Chana and Simon Taub, as reported by BBC News today. Both parties want to keep the house, but after two years of negotiations led nowhere, a judge ordered that a partition wall be built inside the house, keeping Mr and Mrs Taub in separate sections of the property. I suppose this is a sort of property equivalent of the judgment of Solomon (although Mr Taub requested the building of the wall). Hopefully, common sense will prevail, at some point in the future.
