While accepting expert testimony that urine had damaged the marble, Judge Stefan Hank ruled the man’s method was within cultural norms, saying that “despite the increasing domestication of men in this context, urinating standing up is still common practice.”

Hank said further that the tenant could have expected “regular conflicts” with those he lived with — but not that the bathroom’s marble floor would be damaged.
