Jeffrey Marthon’s neighbors could have been excused for thinking they were being deprived of sleep by dogs, owls or a local production of Riverdance. When they found out it was Marthon, however, who was the cause of the barking, hooting, and foot stomping that was keeping them awake at nights, they were understandably upset. The story has a twist, however: Marthon has Tourette’s Syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes its sufferers to make unexpected body movements and noises for sometimes prolonged periods of time. Unsympathetic, his condominium’s board still tried to kick Marthon, a lawyer, and his wife out of their suburban Chicago apartment.
