Judge refuses to toss Meadowlands megamall lawsuit
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.
