THE BRONX - FreshDirect has won an appeal dismissing a lawsuit that would have blocked the online grocer from coming to Mott Haven. 

The appeal is a big step forward for the company, which has faced a number of hurdles in trying to move its headquarters to the Harlem River Yards. 

Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. has been leading the charge to bring FreshDirect local, promising new jobs for the Bronx. 

One group of opponents staged a sit-in just last weekend, claiming that the city pushed through the deal without the proper environmental review.
