Super Bowl Ticket Lawsuit Is Aimed At Cowboys, Jerry Jones And NFL

The story surrounding the 2011 Super Bowl tickets fiasco continues on. According to the latest reports, a Los Angeles-based law firm is filing a class-action lawsuit against the Dallas Cowboys, owner Jerry Jones and the NFL. The suit involves those 400 fans who had a ticket to the game but were unable to use their seats because of unfinished temporary seating sections and fans who had valid tickets but obstructed views of the game. 

The lawsuit is seeking $5 million in damages.

The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, as well as fraud, deceit and concealment, and violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. It seeks to recover the economic loss of the ticket holders, which under the DTPA can be tripled, and punitive damages.

I was at the Super Bowl and there were some pretty bad seats behind the end zone. Here's one shot of a seat that appears obstructed (via Twitter):

It looks like that picture was taken with someone standing up so the view may not be that bad but obviously it's not ideal. I was able to walk over to one of the seats that was just to the left of this picture (without that beam protruding) behind the Green Bay Packers end zone and, while I could see the field sitting down on the top row, they're not what you would expect spending hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars.
