ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - They no longer call the Gateway City home, but Monday the Los Angeles Rams appeared to suffer another loss in St. Louis.
Court documents show a judge has ruled original owners of a St. Louis Rams Personal Seat License are owed a refund. The PSL contracts were originally for 30 years, but the team left St. Louis 9 years early before the 2016 season.
Now, a judge has agreed with attorney A.J. Bruning that fans are owed a pro-rated refund for those remaining years.
“I hope the Rams do the right thing and refund these PSL holders their money,” says Bruning who says more work has to be done to determine how many fans could be eligible and for how much money.
However, Bruning expects the Rams could pay millions, divided among thousands of fans.
“This was a big victory for the St. Louis region and the St. Louis Rams fan base,” said Bruning.
There is a second part to this latest ruling. The judge also said PSL owners who bought their license after the original sale, with different language in their contracts, may still have valid PSL's with the right to buy season tickets to Rams games in Los Angeles. And that, Bruning says, could be a head ache to litigate.
His firm is focused on representing the original owners and their potential refunds.
Bruning is hoping more PSL owners will come forward as this case progresses. Owners can contact his firm through his website http://www.bruninglegal.com.
