MTV's "Snooki & JWoww" can keep things business as usual in a residential neighborhood on the Jersey Shore, a judge decided Monday. For now. Residents of Pelican Island in Berkeley Township, N.J., had requested an injunction against 495 Productions to stop the cameras from rolling, but Ocean County Superior Court Judge E.
