HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey judge will decide by the end of the week whether to throw out a lawsuit filed by the state’s two NFL teams against the developers of a megamall near their stadium.

The New York Jets and New York Giants sued the developers of the proposed “American Dream Meadowlands” in June, claiming the project in their backyard would create epic traffic problems and interfere with game days.

The suit demands that the Triple Five Group shut down the American Dream shopping and entertainment complex on game-days, the New York Times reported.

The complex is expected to include an indoor amusement park, among other attractions.

They also say the facility violates a prior agreement they had to approve any expansion plans at the East Rutherford site, which is near MetLife stadium where the teams play.

The mall was supposed to open in 2007 but has been plagued by financial problems.

Are you in favor of the development of the American Dream mall, or do you think that it will be too much for the area to handle? Sound off with your thoughts and comments in the section below…
