A judge in the "Snooki & JWoww" case ruled that Jersey shore residents can't stop MTV stars Nicole Polizzi and Jennifer Farley from taping the new season of their show.

Residents of Pelican Island, a small beach community in Berkeley Township, N.J., worried that the reality stars would bring with them the raucous partying that made them famous on "Jersey Shore," and many filed complaints seeking an injunction on production of the spinoff series.

Robert Heffernan, who lives two doors down from the house used for taping, led the pack with the help of Red Bank attorney Ron Gasiorowski.

"To allow this activity to go forward in the residential zone is a 'threat of irreparable harm'" to Heffernan and his neighbors, according to the complaint. Gasiorowski also noted in the filing that the production violates township code that prohibits commercial enterprise in an area deemed a residential zone.

Ocean County Superior Court Judge E. David Millard threw out the neighbors' complaints, ruling that filming of season three of "Snooki & JWoww" could continue for now, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Yet to be decided, however, is whether taping constitutes a zoning violation. The owner of the house used for the MTV show, who previously rented the "Jersey Shore" house to 495 Productions, is reportedly seeking a zoning variance to the township's prohibition on commercial activity in residential neighborhoods.

Polizzi reacted strongly online to the original complaints.

"Unbelievable how adults are trying to ban my son, fiancé, and I from enjoying our summer at the shore," the reality star posted on Instagram. "Grow up, get over yourself and move on. This is not how we should be treating one another. Absolutely sick and very sad. I pray for you. There's much bigger things to worry about in life than trying to ban my family from your neighborhood."

"Snooki & JWoww" chronicles the post-"Jersey Shore" lives of Polizzi and Farley as they adjust to motherhood, plan their weddings, and work to maintain their friendship.
