A downtown coalition has filed a lawsuit to block Fresno's Fulton Mall project.

The City Council last month approved the plan to open the Fulton Mall to traffic. The city has secured $20 million in federal and state grants.

The coalition's main issue is the certification of the environmental impact report. The lawsuit was filed on Friday in Fresno County Superior Court.
