Pontiac A lawsuit seeking an injunction against Detroit Red Wings Darren Helm and Tomas Tatar for late-night activity inside a Royal Oak condominium has been resolved and dismissed, according to an attorney Thursday.

The Main Street Lofts Condominium Association filed a complaint in Oakland Circuit Court in March asking the hockey players to comply with the association's noise rules or "vacate the premises."

"Specifics of the agreement are confidential but you can report that the matter has been resolved," said Cheryl V. Jordan, an attorney for the association.

An order dismissing the complaint was signed Thursday by Judge Denise Langford Morris.

Helm, 27, is the owner of the condominium but had moved out prior to the complaint and was letting Tatar, 23, reside in the trendy third-floor space.

Tatar reportedly moved out shortly after the Wings were eliminated in this year's playoffs in April.

The pair are both fan favorites considered by many as part of the Wings' future. Neither could immediately be reached for comment.

In the original complaint, the association alleged it had received received numerous complaints from neighbors that excessive noise had been heard coming from the condominium "up to four nights a week" between midnight and 4 a.m. since late October 2013. Neighbors had become weary of "loud music, yelling and banging on the floors and walls."

Tatar, a Slovakian native, allegedly also made a habit of routinely parking his vehicle in parking spaces inside the private parking lot designated for short-term guest parking.
