Judge dismisses claims vs. Cowboys for Super Bowl seating
U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn ruled that parts of the litigation can continue against the NFL.
The class action suit was filed by fans affected by the problems with temporary seating at the 2011 game at Cowboys Stadium. More than 1,000 fans were affected by the issue, including about 475 who got no seat at all.
Cowboys spokesman Brett Daniels declined to comment when contacted by the newspaper, referring all questions to the NFL.
"The court's ruling threw out all claims brought on behalf of those fans who were eligible for the NFL's voluntary reimbursement offers except for a breach of contract claim," a statement the NFL released to the newspaper read. "We continue to believe that the offers made to these ticketholders meet or exceed what they could be entitled to under the law. In fact, the vast majority of these fans accepted the NFL's offers long ago."
