Four St. Louis Rams fans have filed a lawsuit over the team’s move to Los Angeles, citing “deception, fraud, false pretense and false promises.”
The lawyer for the four is hoping to turn it into a class-action suit allowing tens of thousands of people who bought game tickets or team merchandise in the last five years to join the action.
The suit, filed in St. Louis Circuit Court, alleges the Rams violated the state’s Merchandising Practices Act. Under the act, it is against the law to use deception or omit any “material fact” in connection with the sale of merchandise.
The suit, filed Thursday 1/14/16, seeks to recover actual and punitive damages for those people who bought Rams merchandise between 2000 and 2015.
