The decade-long feud between billionaire Louis Bacon and Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard over their neighboring properties in the Bahamas lives on.

A New York appeals court on Tuesday revived a defamation lawsuit filed by Bacon against Nygard in 2015, adding another chapter in the acrimony between the two. They have battled in courts from London to Los Angeles over matters including Nygard’s plans to expand his property and Bacon’s use of large speakers to drown out noise from Nygard’s parties.
