NFL, Cowboys Sued for Millions Over Super Bowl Seating Snafu

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Now that the glow from Super Bowl 45 has worn off, some fans want what they say is their just due for shabby treatment they received last Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

A Los Angeles law firm Wednesday filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of close to one thousand people who were either moved from the seats they had as season-ticketholders or were forced to watch the game from a monitor set up in the arena because of construction problems.

The NFL offered about 400 spectators triple refunds, tickets to next year's Super Bowl and allowed them on the field for the post-game activities.

But that wasn't enough to placate the fans who filed the lawsuit that seeks more than $5 million in travel and ticket reimbursement and damages.  The NFL, the Dallas Cowboys and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones were named as defendants.

Los Angeles attorney Michael Avenatti explained, "The NFL and Jerry Jones sold something to fans they weren't able to deliver, and they knew they weren't able to deliver it."
