Pauly Shore, Wes Craven

Denise Truscello/, Steve Granitz/

Pauly Shore wasn't able to weasel out of this one.

A judge on Thursday dismissed a countersuit filed by the comedian against neighbor Wes Craven over a landslide on his property he claims was caused by the Nightmare on Elm Street visionary's lax groundskeeping.

Craven's attorneys had argued that Shore waited too long—Feb. 11, eight months after Craven sued Shore to pay for his own slope failure—to file suit. The Son in Law star, meanwhile, contended he took action as soon as he had his property inspected and put two and two together.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O'Donnell granted Craven's motion to dismiss on procedural grounds; however, she tossed the case "without prejudice," meaning Shore's right to sue is still intact and he can refile an amended complaint if he chooses.

The warring parties are currently trying to settle things through mediation, but, if all else fails, Craven's case against Shore is set to go to trial Oct. 15.
