Wes Craven vs. Pauly Shore

The year: 2008

The charge: It’s always wacky to hear about Hollywood neighbors, who lives next to who, etc. — though about the only time we do is when there’s a dispute. And that’s what happened when Nightmare on Elm Street director Wes Craven took “The Weasel” to court over work on his home (a pool, a spa, and some landscaping) that the filmmaker said caused water runoff that damaged his property. Shore (all together now) countersued, alleging that Craven’s poor upkeep of his property caused a landslide and rodent troubles. Related question: who knew Pauly Shore had enough income for home improvements?

The verdict: A trial was set for October of 2008, but the two men hammered out a settlement in August, in which Shore agreed to help Craven repair his damages.
