HACKENSACK - The developers of a proposed megamall in East Rutherford are asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the New York Jets and the New York Giants.

The teams claim the proposed "American Dream Meadowlands" 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.

Canadian-based Triple Five made the request in court papers filed yesterday.

Lawyers representing the teams and the company that built the stadium also claim the project will create "a transportation nightmare" that will adversely affect football fans.
