Tuckerton Municipal Court Judge Paul Carr had some rough and ready advice for an asthmatic man who claims his next-door neighbor was trying to smoke him out by constant use of a fireplace: Maybe moving to Arizona would help. Presiding over a dispute between Charles Zemartis and Joseph Martin, who filed harassment claims against each other, Carr said there was no evidence that Martin, the fireplace user, was trying to do intentional harm to Zemartis. “He burns wood to heat his home,” Carr told Zemartis, according to a report in The Press of Atlantic City. “His intention is not to kill you.” Zemartis contended that the smoke was so dense that he couldn’t breath and that Martin refused to stop despite his constant complaints. But without evidence of intent, Carr found Martin not guilty and suggested a solution for Zemartis. “Maybe you could move to Arizona,” Carr said. “I hear that’s good for people with asthma.”
