ST. LOUIS (Legal Newsline) – A Missouri man is suing a National Football League team over claims his season-ticket buying license will be unusable after the team relocates.
Ronald McAllister, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class-action lawsuit Feb. 9 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division against the St. Louis Rams LLC, doing business as the St. Louis Rams Partnership, alleging unjust enrichment, money had and received, breach of contract, breach of good faith and fair dealing and violation of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.
The suit states that tens of thousands of St. Louis Rams season-ticket holders purchased personal seat licenses (PSLs), which gave them the right to buy Rams season tickets through the 2024 season.
However, the team announced in January that it was relocating to Los Angeles, allegedly rendering these PSLs valueless.
The Rams have allegedly not reimbursed PSL owners for what they paid for the portion of the licenses that are now purportedly unusable.
McAllister and others in the class seek declaratory judgment that the PSL agreements between them and the Rams are illusory contracts of no force and effect, restitution, punitive and compensatory damages, attorney fees, costs of the suit, and a jury trial. They are represented by attorneys Richard S. Cornfeld of the Law Office of Richard S. Cornfeld in St. Louis; Anthony S. Bruning, Anthony S. Bruning Jr., and Ryan L. Bruning of The Bruning Law Firm in St. Louis; and Mark Goldenberg, Thomas P. Rosenfeld and Kevin P. Green of Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli in Edwardsville, Illinois.
