MIAMI -- Donald Trump is suing Palm Beach County and the airport to quiet down.

A lawsuit filed Monday in Palm Beach County Circuit Court is the latest legal action taken by Trump in a decades-old disagreement over noise control at Palm Beach International Airport, which is near Trump's ritzy Mar-a-Lago home.

The lawsuit also names the airport's director, Bruce Pelly. A message left for Pelly Tuesday was not immediately returned.

The lawsuit says the county failed to assess noise impacts. It asks to block the airport's planned expansion and to prevent flights from flying over Trump's home.

Trump was part of a group that founded the Good Neighbor Council for Aircraft Noise Control, which has fought to keep noisy planes away from the area.
