Judge refuses to toss Meadowlands megamall lawsuit
NEW YORK -- A New Jersey judge has refused to throw out a lawsuit filed by the New York Giants and New York Jets over the proposed American Dream megamall in the Meadowlands sports complex.
State Superior Court Judge Peter Doyne's ruling released Monday means the suit against the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority and developer Triple Five Group can go forward.
The lawsuit claims Edmonton-based Triple Five and the sports authority violated a 2006 agreement that essentially gave the teams veto power over any modifications to the original design for the mall, known as Xanadu.
Xanadu was supposed to open in 2007 but fell prey to the financial downturn and problems with the original developers, and it lay dormant until Triple Five took over in late 2010.
