MIAMI (AP) - A Florida judge has rejected a lawsuit by Donald Trump that claims noise from a nearby airport is hurting his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach.

Trump’s attorney told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel he plans to refile the case against Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach International Airport after the judge’s decision Tuesday.

The lawsuit filed in July was the latest legal action by Trump in a decades-old disagreement over noise control at the airport, which is near his club. Mar-a-Lago is a 126-room private club in a historic mansion.

Trump’s suit argued that noise, vibrations and emissions from passing aircraft were damaging the property value of his estate.

The judge left an option for Trump’s side to refile an amended lawsuit within 20 days.
