The St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, the city of St. Louis and St. Louis County have filed a lawsuit against the Rams and the NFL over their relocation to Los Angeles.
The plaintiffs allege the Rams and the NFL violated the standards of team relocations and breached its contract with the city.
The suit says the Rams made intentional false claims that only enriched themselves and damaged the plaintiffs.
According to the complaint, because of the Rams move to Los Angeles, St. Louis lost an estimated $1.85 - $3.5 million each year in amusement and ticket tax collections, approximately $7.5 million in property tax, $1.4 million in sales tax and millions in earnings taxes. The suit also claims the city lost more than $100 million in net proceeds because of the move as well as hotel and property tax revenue and sales tax revenue.
