Cowboys, NFL Want SB XLV Lawsuit Dismissed



    The NFL, along with the Dallas Cowboys have asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit filed on behalf of Super Bowl XLV ticket holders who were denied admission when their seats--which were installed as a temporary measure for the big game--were deemed unsuitable for use.

    The motion filed on Thursday argues against the idea that the ticket holders were defrauded because the league worked in concert with the labor team present at Cowboys Stadium through the afternoon to prepare the seats, and says that the NFL went "beyond its contractual obligations" in offering compensation to the fans affected.

    Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing the fans in the class action suit, has since responded, saying that the Cowboys’ and the NFL’s joint request for dismissal shows that neither the team or the league understands their legal obligations.
