The New York Giants and the New York Jets are trying to tackle a Meadowlands mall development just as it appears to be destined for the endzone. The two teams filed a lawsuit on Friday to block the American Dream Meadowlands mall in New Jersey, the Associated Press reported. The suit, which the teams previously threatened to file this spring if differences with developer Triple Five could not be resolved, focuses on an alleged violation of a prior agreement that the two teams, who play at the nearby MetLife Stadium, had secured the rights to approve any expansion plans for the shopping center. As previously reported, the two football teams said they were concerned that the mall’s development would intensify stadium traffic as most fans arrive by car. The main concession the teams had sought was the closure of the mall’s amusement park section during home games.

Meadlowlands has already faced other challenges of securing financing an environmental concerns by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, but the plan had appeared to be back on track. [AP via Post]
