NYC couple who split house with wall get divorce

NEW YORK — A feuding New York City couple who built a wall through the house that neither one would give up finally has been granted a divorce.

Simon and Chana Taub had been living in their brownstone separated by the wall that a judge ordered built since both Taubs refused to move.

At the time, New York state didn’t allow the speedy dissolution of a marriage without proof that one spouse is 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.

Taub’s lawyer said his client was happy with the decision. Chana Taub told the Daily News she would appeal.
