    A lawsuit is claiming that a leak from Marisa Tomei's New York City apartment has damaged the homes of two downstairs neighbors, including director John Waters.

    Representatives for the Academy Award-winning actress didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

    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 Village.

    Waters said in an email that the case is a standard insurance claim completely out of his hands with no animosity between Tomei and himself.

    The insurers' lawyer didn't immediately return a call.
