Judge allows taping of Snooki MTV series in New Jersey town

The cameras can keep on rolling for "Snooki & JWoww."

A judge won't stop production of the MTV reality show in a New Jersey shore town that's rebuilding from Superstorm Sandy.

Berkeley Township officials and residents fear taping of the "Jersey Shore" spin-offcould hinder recovery efforts.

Attorney Ron Gasiorowski tells the Asbury Park Press 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.

495 Productions has been taping part of the series, starring Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jennifer "JWoww" Farley, in a home in a residential area of Berkeley Township.

The property owner (who also owns the Seaside Heights, N.J., home where four seasons of "Jersey Shore" were taped) 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.
