BERKELEY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- A judge won't stop production of the MTV reality show "Snooki & JWoww" in a New Jersey shore town rebuilding from Superstorm Sandy.

Berkeley Township officials and residents fear taping of the "Jersey Shore" spinoff could hinder recovery efforts.

Attorney Ron Gasiorowski told the Asbury Park Press he is not pleased with the ruling. But the lawyer said the judge has not ruled on his argument that the production violates the town's zoning ordinance.

The property owner is seeking a variance after the town notified him that the home is in an area zoned for residential use.

Neighbor Rocco Vita said tourists haven't flocked to the home during taping. He said the cast says hello and security is very friendly.
