Justin Theroux’s neighbor appeals ruling that he trespassed on actor’s property
Justin Theroux‘s neighbor is appealing a judge’s ruling that he trespassed on the HBO “The Leftovers” star’s West Village property.
The former Mr. Jennifer Aniston and real estate lawyer Norman Resnicow have been duking it out in court for two years after the actor sued his downstairs neighbor for trespass and harassment in 2017.
Theroux — who shared the pad with the “Friends” star when they were married — said the harassment campaign began after he and Aniston, 50, started a $1 million renovation.
Theroux, 47, said that Resnicow trespassed on his property, peeped into his windows, harassed his workers and killed the ivy that grew between their shared roof terrace.
Last month, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gerald Lebovits determined that Resnicow was trespassing and sided with Theroux on where the boundary line of the roof patio lay, all of which Resnicow is now seeking to have overturned in the Appellate Division, First Department court.
The lawsuit remains open until a trial is held to determine the damages that Resnicow will have to pay Theroux. In the meantime, a temporary restraining order against Resnicow will stay in effect, which bars him from any contact with Theroux and members of the co-op board.
Resnicow’s lawyer, Peter Levine, said, “We have read the decision carefully and believe it is significantly flawed and hence we are taking an appeal.”
Theroux’s lawyer, Eric Sherman, declined to comment.
Last month, Sherman accused Resnicow of violating the TRO again by repeatedly shining a flashlight into Theroux’s apartment.
Resnicow had to fork over $23,000 in May to Theroux and co-op board members for breaking the terms of the TRO by sending an allegedly hostile email to the president of the board.
