That house is too damn high!

When a builder builds a new home way too tall and City Hall lets them get away with it, what happens next?

I can believe that in the 2000-2006 real-estate boom, as City Hall got quite excited about being able to charge more and more and more in Property Taxes, that residential building laws got changed and loosened. But the house being built next door is literally twice as tall as mine, and will block all of my morning sunlight. I can't afford a lawyer or a lawsuit, but it sure seems that they have stolen something from me --- morning sunlight!! What can I do if City Hall has made a mistake in letting them build so high?
