The authority appealed the dismissal of a charge against the defendant rabbi on six counts of nuisance for noise of shouting clapping and stamping emanating from the synagogue to the annoyance of a neighbour.
Held: The court was not obliged to accept the evidence of a witness, and did not have to accept that of the unchallenged expert evidence of environmental and pollution control officers.
