NEW YORK (AP) - The legal wrangling continues between comedian and condo board president Joan Rivers and a former downstairs neighbor in her luxury New York City building.

Elizabeth Hazan was able to get into a $2 million two-bedroom unit on the Upper East Side she once occupied Wednesday despite a judge's ruling the same day that she be denied access until she paid $200,000 in common charges.

The Daily News reported Hazan, surrounded by reporters, convinced police to let her in.

Hazan signed ownership of the apartment to Real Estate Holdings Group in July. That company sued Rivers earlier this month for $15 million.

Rivers lives in the building's $30 million upstairs penthouse.

In a statement, Rivers called Hazan a deadbeat owner and said the building would endure the fiasco. The board is considering its legal options.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
