How to Sue a Resident


Beit Din Eretz Hemda - Gazit

Tammuz 24 5781
Date and Place: 18 Iyar 5666 (1906), Yafo

Recipient: The council of Rechovot

Body: Mr. Y. G. showed me the council’s response to him, that you are unwilling to adjudicate in beit din with an individual until he first pays the amount that the municipality has demanded of him. I am hereby obligated to inform you, distinguished people, that according to Torah financial law, the right that the community has in such adjudication is to request collateral from the individual litigant before they begin adjudication, if they have doubts about whether he will pay after an award has been ruled. They do not have a right to demand payment of outstanding claims [prior to adjudication].

I hope that you will not allow any break from the standards that are required for adjudication and that you will carry out the matter according to the rules. I want to set the time for a hearing as part of the adjudication by this upcoming Shavuot (within 17 days).
