Feb. 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Austin, TX- February 20, 2012- The latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert reports on how a federal judge from the Northern District of Texas has delivered a modest victory to both Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the National Football League, who were sued by fans that were displaced at the 2011 Super Bowl when the NFL failed to complete construction of additional seating for the big game as promised.

“But the war seems far from over,” according to the Alert. “Fresh off that ruling in November, the plaintiffs amended two of their three claims to provide more specificity as the judge requested. The third claim, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, had been dismissed with prejudice and could not be re-filed.”
