Judge to Connery: Act Your Age!

12/27/2007 1:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The latest legal wrangling between Sean Connery, 77, and his downstairs neighbor has resulted in a judge telling both sides to calm down and settle their dispute like adults.

So why are these two acting like infants?

Well, Connery has been engaged in a protracted battle related to roof repairs on the townhouse he calls home in Manhattan. His neighbor, Burton Sultan, claims the renovations subjected him to noise, fumes, leaks and rats, while Connery claims Sultan's complaints have delayed needed repairs to the roof -- putting them in danger and raising costs.

In a ruling released yesterday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Marcy Friedman scolded both sides for their "blunderbuss" court attacks, tossing out most of Sultan's claims and barring both sides from filing any other lawsuits without her permission.

In 2005, as part of one of many lawsuits between the two, Sultan called Connery a "foulmouthed, fat old man" and an "ogre" who blasted music at "all hours." You'll rue the day!

Sean's neighbor is an idiot and needs his but whooped, the roof is leaking, it has to be fixed, there's only one way to fix it.
The judge needs to throw that idiot in jail for a weekend while the roofers fix the leak.

Burton SULTAN? That name sounds suspect. If I were Sean I'd watch my back.

Connery should just bust out Old Nellie, that portable helicopter from one of the James Bond movies, assemble it and unload the machine gun fire on dat ass. I believe that's a calm, civilized, respectable response to the situation. His neighbor will be both shaken and stirred.

I don't wanna hear that you're sick of being stalked by anyone. Do you recall way back when you were dying to be the very one in the magazines? No...you';re right! No one has the right to stalk you outside your home or on private school grounds! But you know that on public grounds they have every right and the second you gained that first million you became grounds for public attention...in hollywood? Let's not act all dumb...you knew it was possible. I'm sick of hearing about celebrities acting up and getting little time in jail or biotching about their lives being stalked. Least you have the money to stop any of it at any second if you damn well wished! But then again...what if all the cameras went away? Hmm...No fans or magazines ...Wonder how you could make it through the day? No one is talking about you...poor, poor you! I miss the old hollywood! Back when dean martin, john wayne all the real actors ruled. Back then you could ride a bus to cali and make a dream come true...today you better be an off spring of bruce willis of brad pitt to get a job or that of tomkats!! You just don't get noticed unless you're already rich...it's a shame...

Sometimes actors with lots of money act as if they would own the whole world. But we all do not know what really happened. There is only one thing to remember: Be nice to your neighbors, you never know, when you need their help one day.

#13 you're right he wasn't being stalked. But i wanted to bring things to others attention about all the folking celebs cry baby BS. Everyone has fights with their neighbors and it doesn't make the news. So what...Big deal Sean!! You are pi$$ed at your neighbor or them at you..I for one don't wanna read about you fighting with your neighbor. Sometimes i question why i even come to TMZ...LOL maybe it's because of my need to see the celebs making a$$es out of them selves like the rest of us normal people!
