Can you add new cards to the stack as it is resolving?

My opponent declared his attackers, before declaring blockers I played Midnight Haunting, He flashed in Snapcaster Mage in response, we let snapcaster resolve, and he targeted a Mana Leak in his graveyard to counter my Midnight  Haunting.  We had a judge there say it was legal, but I wanted to double check here.
Yes, the stack doesn't resolve. Objects on the stack resolve one at a time, and players get priority in between.
All Generalizations are Bad
the stack never resolves
each object resolves individually, and after each time each player gets priority to add stuff to the stack

Yes, that's fine.  Objects on the stack resolve one-at-a-time, and players get priority to play spells or abilities before the next item on the stack resolves.
Ok makes sense, at the time I thought the stack is built then resolved, not each card individually
think about the stack as a stack of plates
each player can add plates, then one by one the top plate is removed (it resolves)
after each plate is removed each player can potentially add a new plate

The stack always exists, just most of the time it's empty.

It's a zone, like the battlefield or the library or the graveyard.

Spells and abilities go there to resolve.
