Boston's ongoing legal feud with Wynn Resorts, which won the right to build a $1.7 billion casino next door in Everett, continues with a lawsuit filed against Wynn on Tuesday. Mayor Marty Walsh has been trying to stop the project — claiming that the state Gaming Commission awarded developer Steve Wynn the license through a broken process.

The city is challenging the validity of the state's environmental certification for the project.
