Philly.com: NFL, Cowboys urge dismissal of Super suit


Recommended Posts


The NFL and the Dallas Cowboys have asked a federal court judge to dismiss the class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of Super Bowl ticketholders who wound up with no seats for the game.

About 1,250 temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington were deemed unsafe only hours before the Feb. 6 game between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers. That forced about 850 ticketholders to move to new seats and 400 others to watch the game from standing-room locations.

A 26-page motion filed by the league and the team on Thursday says the ticketholders aren't entitled to compensation beyond what they've already been offered. It also says the ticketholders weren't defrauded as a result of the fiasco.

The motion states that the NFL could revoke ticketholding privileges as long as it provided a refund. The league offered displaced fans the actual prices they paid for their tickets, as well as all documented travel, lodging and meal expenses.

According to the motion, the NFL and the Cowboys didn't know until just before the game that the seats would be inadequate and worked into the afternoon to deal with the issue.
