On the quality of apartment building in Stockholm

A couple who kept their whole apartment block awake with their non-stop love-making have won a case to halt their eviction.
I don't understand how this case brought to court the couple instead of the contractor who built the apartment house without appropriate acoustic insulation. You can imagine the quality of the building when the judges ruled that "It cannot be determined which flat was responsible for the noise..."

The other point that this article raises, albeit indirectly, is that some folks in Stockholm can't abide when someone else enjoys life.

And finally to this:
One disgruntled neighbour said:" Their screams of passion were so loud I could hear them three floors away. I don't think they were playing cards."
Surely the disgruntled complainant never played cards, not to speak about his lovemaking techniques. Bleh...
