DETROIT (WKZO) -- Matty Moroun, owner of the Ambassador Bridge, has filed a lawsuit against federal officials and the Canadian government in an attempt to halt the construction of a second crossing over the Detroit River.

According to the Detroit Free Press, in the suit, Moroun's International Bridge Company, claims a "perpetual and exclusive franchise right" granting the Ambassador Bridge the right to operate without competition from another bridge.  Moroun claims that the proposed New International Trade Crossing would violate that right.
