Neighbor's NY noise suit against Madonna

NEW YORK (AP) - Madonna has lost a bid to get rid of a neighbor's lawsuit claiming the superstar made a racket by using her New York City apartment as a rehearsal studio.

A judge turned down Madonna's request to dismiss the suit. Her publicist and lawyer didn't immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday, after the Aug. 24 decision was reported in the New York Law Journal.

Karen George says Madonna's dance and exercise routines subjected neighbors to "blaring music, stomping and shaking walls" for up to three hours a day. Madonna took steps to dampen the sound in 2009, but George says they didn't work.

She sued Madonna and the building's co-op board. They say the noise never topped legal levels.

The judge says the dispute warrants a trial.
