Pauly Shore, Wes Craven

Denise Truscello/, Steve Granitz/

Welcome to the justice system's new nightmare.

Pauly Shore has filed a motion in L.A. Superior Court opposing horror meister Wes Craven's request to have the Jury Duty star's lawsuit over damage to his Hollywood Hills property dismissed.

Craven sued Shore last summer, claiming the funnyish-man failed to take neighborly precautions while renovating his backyard in 2006 and that runoff from Shore's new pool and spa contributed to slope failure in his yard.

Shore countersued in February, alleging the Nightmare on Elm Street director didn't properly maintain his own hillside vegetation and landscaping, thereby causing a landslide on Shore's lot in December 2006.

Craven subsequently claimed Shore waited too long to file suit, and now the actor has responded by arguing that he didn't know the root of the outdoor evil until he had his and Craven's respective properties inspected and tested. Then, he says, he took action right away.

A hearing on Craven's motion to dismiss is set for May 28. Otherwise, both cases are scheduled to go to trial Oct. 15.
