The first lawsuit in the fallout from the seat issues at Cowboys Stadium last Sunday has been filed. The man behind the paperwork: Mike Dolabi, one of the 400 fans. According to Thomas Korosec of Bloomberg, “Dolabi, who sued on behalf of himself and other fans, said they had paid at least $100,000 for seat licenses at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and were promised seats at Super Bowl XLV with ‘the best sightlines in the stadium,’ according to the complaint filed in federal court in Dallas yesterday.”

In addition to punitive damages, the plaintiff is seeking more than $5 million in actual damages (which can be tripled under Texas’ trade law). The NFL, Jones and the Cowboys are accused of fraud, breach of good faith, breach of contract and violating Texas’ deceptive trade practices law.

This likely won’t be the last story about legal action taken against the Cowboys and NFL. Keep in mind, if someone has enough money to attend a Super Bowl, chances are they have access to a good attorney.
