I am failing to recall a pithy phrase involving the word דין to indicate that one should respect the decisions of one's local Rabbi. Something like, 'the decisor of the place is the decisor.' Is there such a phrase?

@bimargulies, so... you don't actually have a question, is that right? I'll close this, then. – msh210 Jan 26 '14 at 19:31
