In a Legal training manuel called "Staturary Nuisance - A Practical Guide", a sub section entitled "5. Unusual Sensitivity - The Eggshell Rule", it states:-
If a plaintiff is particularlysensitive to a type of nuisence, it is not actionable unless one can show that the nuisence would have affected a "reasonable" person.
The courts view is that a person should be able to increasehis neighbors liabilities because they carry out special activities on their premisies.
