NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Giants and New York Jets have refiled a lawsuit seeking to block developers from expanding a planned megamall near the northern New Jersey stadium where they both play.

The move comes two weeks after the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority approved a new master plan for the American Dream megamall in the Meadowlands.

An initial lawsuit in New Jersey against developer Triple Five and the sports authority was dismissed last year by a judge who said it was premature. But the authority's approval of the project opened the door for it to be refiled.

Giants co-owner John Mara and Jets owner Woody Johnson tell The Associated Press they still have concerns about traffic and parking at the mall creating gridlock for fans on game days at MetLife Stadium.
