Man must pay $2,000 every time he smokes a cigar in his home

This has got to be one of the craziest legal settlements ever.

The New York Post reports that Harry Lysons, 70, of Manhattan has to pay $2,000 every time he lights up a cigar in his home. He must pay his neighbors, Russell and Amanda Poses, $2,000 every time he smokes a cigar in his apartment. If he doesn't pay within 15 days, he will have to pay another $1,500. His neighbours were suing him for $2 million, so this is a bit of a deal, I suppose.

The neighbours claim that the smell from the cigars created "foul and noxious odors ... that the strong [odor] was so pungent that you can't eat dinner." The Poses also alleged that the cigars created  breathing problems and ear infections for their children.

Lysons' attorney Jeffrey Marcus said that his client had no plans to quit smoking cigars. That-a-boy Harry!
