The clapping, clanging, and gonging of nearby church bells was too much for John Devaney to bear.
That’s why the Narragansett, Rhode Island, man has filed a lawsuit against St. Thomas More Catholic Parish — claiming that these bills have disrupted his life, even leading to the breakup of his marriage.
According to Devaney’s suit, these bells caused emotional stress, bad moods, and arguments with his wife.
