Marisa Tomei sued over leak in her NYC building

NEW YORK (AP) - A lawsuit claims a leak from Marisa Tomei’s New York City apartment has damaged the homes of two downstairs neighbors, including director John Waters.

The neighbors’ insurance companies filed the suit this week in a Manhattan court. The suit says the “My Cousin Vinny” actress’ “negligence” caused a September 2010 leak that left more than $128,000 in damage at the building in Manhattan’s Greenwich (GREN’-ich) Village.

Waters says in an email the case is a standard insurance claim completely out of his hands. The “Hairspray” director says there’s no animosity between him and Tomei.

The insurers’ lawyer and representatives for the Academy Award-winning actress haven’t responded to messages left Thursday seeking comment.
