A ruling has been issued in the effort of the Giants and Jets to block the construction of a mega-mall near MetLife Stadium. And the ruling is that it’s too early for a ruling.
According to the Associated Press, a judge has concluded that an attack on the proposed complex is premature, given that the project has yet to receive the green light from the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority. “Without knowing what the final, approved proposal will be, the court cannot decide whether it will cause adverse effects to plaintiffs,” Superior Court Judge Peter Doyne said in a written decision.
The teams believe that the “American Dream” complex will be a (wait for it) nightmare on game day, causing parking and traffic issues.
Governor Chris Christie, who once called the exterior of the structure “g0d-awful ugly,” has more recently said that the lawsuit from the Giants and Jets is “anti-New Jersey.”
Neither Giants co-owner John Mara nor Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon have responded by calling Christie “anti-salad,” unfortunately.
