NJ judge allows taping of Snooki MTV series

BERKELEY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A judge won’t stop production of the MTV reality show “Snooki & JWoww” in a New Jersey shore town that’s rebuilding from Superstorm Sandy.

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

Attorney Ron Gasiorowski tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1d0MHIB ) he’s not pleased with the ruling. But the lawyer says 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 says tourists haven’t flocked to the home during taping. He says the cast says hello and security is very friendly.
