(CBS/AP) SANTA FE, N.M. - A judge has ordered some Santa Fe neighbors to stop threatening each other over barking dogs, loud music and access to a subdivision road.

Any other problems?

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that State District Judge Frank Mathew Thursday told the feuding neighbors  in the Mission Viejo subdivision not to harass or call one another after a series of bizarre complaints.

Keith Bujold has been in a long fight with neighbor Ernest Kavanaugh Sr. over access to a disputed road that has resulted in threats with pistols.

Bujold says the Kavanaughs began harassing him and his wife four years ago by telling them, "You're all Gringos from New York. Go back to the city and leave us alone."

But Kavanaugh says Bujold called him a "Mexican" who didn't speak English well.

Another case headed to the Supreme Court?...
