Law360: Super Bowl Fans Revive Fight Over Deceptive Ticket Sales
12/23/2011

Would-be attendees of the most recent Super Bowl renewed their fight Wednesday in Texas federal court against the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys, adding fraud and breach of contract claims to a class action claiming the Cowboys negligently oversold seats for the game.

The Super Bowl ticketholders, who allegedly were either denied access to Cowboys Stadium or to the seats for which they had paid, filed an amended complaint reinforcing their argument that the NFL and the Cowboys breached the contract implicit in their ticket purchase.

The amended complaint comes in response to U.S. District Judge Barbara M. G. Lynn’s ruling in November that dismissed claims of fraud, negligent misrepresentation and breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing against the NFL and contract breach against the Cowboys…

The NFL is represented by George W. Bramblett Jr.Daniel H. Gold and R. Thaddeus Behrens of Haynes and Boone, LLP as well as by Levi G. McCathern of McCathern LLP.
