Laws which help some and harm others


"The government's law of tenancy [aka rent control] is just and accepted, especially in big cities, for it is targeted against those who gouge prices and skin the hides of the indigent. Even if it appears, at times, as cheating landlords who are not wealthy, that is the way of law, at times violating justice. We follow the majority [of cases]."

(R' Yosef Eliyahu Henkin, Teshuvot Ivra 96:9)

Have a great day,
