Jets, Giants Suit Against American Dream Dismissed
The suit brought by the Jets and Giants to block development of the American Dream shopping complex in the Meadowlands has been dismissed.
The suit, brought about by concerns about traffic on game days, was dismissed in Bergen County Superior Court because developer Triple Five has not yet submitted final plans for the former Xanadu development according to the Star Ledger.
Judge Peter Doyne ruled that the teams may bring suit again once final plans are submitted and approved by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.
“Crucially, and fatally to plaintiffs’ claim, it appears the process for the approval of a major modification set forth in the Redevelopment Agreement, and authorized by the (New Jersey Sports and Exposision Authority Law)…has only started,” wrote Doyne.
In a joint statement the Jets and Giants were pleased with the ruling and that the NJSEA will address their concerns about traffic. ” In the meanwhile, the lawsuit against Triple Five continues and if the NJSEA does not properly address those concerns, we will look to this Court to enforce our rights as directed by the Judge.”
