I think you've watched one too many episodes of Dominick Dunne's Power Privilege and Justice.

well that's silly. Old money needs to understand that someone worth billions of dollars doesn't give two shits what an old society hag thinks of them. He shouldn't be respected because he's a scumbag.

it seems like a lot of you don’t understand what is going on here.
which is understandable, given the cloudy way this article was written.

The judge basically said “Dallas isnt liable in the class action suit. The fault lays at the hands of the NFL, theyre the ones who were in charge of all of this, the ones who made the mistakes.” Which is exactly what JJ said all along. I believe even the NFL said as much, but I could be mistaken in that. Its not like, just because its your stadium thats hosting the superbowl, you get to do what you want and make all decisions in regards to capacity/seating/etc. The NFL controls all of that.

The fans have every right to sue the NFL for the mixups. However, the fans got greedy, and in an effort to squueze everything they could out if the NFL, they sued everyone. The judge said “Dallas is exempt”.

Dallas said “hey, cool. but since these greedy people caused us a lot of time and almost $200,000 in legal fees, we’re trying to recapture this.”

Imagine if you owned a restaurant, that took part in a community event, say a fundraiser for charity. The charity says “make 50,000 hamburgers bc we estimate everyone will have two burgers”. So you do. And then the charity sold more tickets than actaual hamburgers exist. Its not your fault, the charity said do X, then the charity does Y.
People sue, the charity tries to make good, but the people say, this isnt enough. Eff it, were suing everyone involved, even the food vendor.

The judge says, BS, the vendor followed direction from the charity, the charity is at fault, NOT the vendor.

Would you at that point say “hey. screw it. All the time and money I wasted on my defense, I’m just glad I spent 200,000 instead of 10 million. boy am I lucky!”

Hell no. You go after the people who wasted your time and money.

That being said, its still not the best move on Dallas’ part.

Attorney Michael Avenatti said the NFL's offer of $5,000 or all documented expenses for Super Bowl XLV -- whichever is higher -- for the 400 fans who were refused seats at the game still falls short of what he is seeking in a class-action suit.


How in the world can anyone side with these people?

Super Bowl ticketholders suing the NFL over the '11 temporary seating fiasco yesterday asked a federal court to hold the Cowboys in contempt for failing to produce sufficient documents related to the controversy. The ticketholders have subpoenaed the team. Earlier this year the court ruled the Cowboys could not be sued as part of the lawsuit, but the ticketholders contend the team was integral to the problem of the temporary seating not being ready for the '11 game at the team’s stadium. As a result, the motion contends that even as a third party not named in the lawsuit, the team should be forced to hand over documents, like communications with the city of Arlington and with temporary seat contractor, Seating Solutions. “Simply put, the Cowboys refuse to provide any responsive documents,” the motion said. The ticketholders have had a variety of discovery complaints filed with the North Texas federal court, including seeking to overcome league objections to depose NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Many of the fans whose seats were not ready or had an obstructed view for the '11 game have already settled with the NFL.


I side 100% with the cowboys being repaid for having to spend $200,000 to comply with a b.s. subpoea by these butthurt fans who had to stand to watch the superbowl.

I had to stand

re: Just in case you somehow forgot that Jerry Jones is borderline retarded.


I would be going after that money, too. That is an absolutely obscene amount of money to have to spend to produce documents during discovery.

Not his fault that they didn't get their class certified and the Customers sued the Cowboys, which was probably the wrong entity to sue and had nothing to do with the claim in the first place. frick that. If I were the Cowboys' lawyer, I'd do the same damn thing. The customers' lawyers shouldn't have dropped the goddamn ball on joining the Cowboys to the suit.

Exactly. The only retards involved in this case are the retards who erroneously sued the Cowboys.

Which is exactly why I said Jones didn't get rich by giving away his money. Which is essentially what he would be doing.

What's frivolous about the lawsuit?



Adjoining the Cowboys and forcing their discovery seems to be frivolous to me. Seems the judge agreed.

The shotgun approach may have backfired on these guys.
