Which of the following is halachah and why, with regard to 2 contradictory statements:
Rav- follow the later one
Shmuel- divide due to "burden of proof is on one seeking to exact?"
Rav Nachman- divide due to "property in doubt is divided?"
Barry Epstein, Dallas, USA
The Halachah is like Rav Nachman, because his opinion is consistent with the majority opinion in the dispute between Sumchus and the Chachamim. (See Ritva)
