Default Class Action Lawsuit filed against Pats

Two Northern Kentucky lawyers, a Cincinnati ticket broker and a former University of Kentucky football player have filed a lawsuit accusing the New England Patriots of cheating in the 2002 Super Bowl and asking for refunds.

The Patriots and Coach Bill Belichick illegally videotaped a St. Louis Rams walk-though before the game to gain an unfair advantage, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in New Orleans, the host city of the game. The Patriots upset the Rams 20 to 17 on a last-second field goal.

The Patriots and the NFL could not immediately be reached for comment.
Through the lawsuit, the broker Kevin Hacker who also attended the Super Bowl, asked the federal court to grant 72,922 people who attended the game a full refund. At a face value of $400 per ticket, that would mean the NFL would have to return $29,168,800.

Willie Gary, who played on the Ram?s Super Bowl team and was team captain his senior year for UK, wants each member of the Rams Super Bowl roster to receive $25,000 ? the difference between the bonuses paid to the losing team and the winning team.

Gary, who now lives in Atlanta and plays arena football, also wants compensation for not receiving a Super Bowl XXXVI ring, which now sell for $125,000 on the Internet auction site eBay, according to the suit.

For 45 players, the difference in bonuses and the value of the rings would be $6,750,000.

The plaintiffs? attorneys ? Eric Deters of Independence and Hugh Campbell Jr. of Villa Hills along with John Young of New Orleans ? have asked that the suit be granted class-action status. The three lawyers allege the Patriots committed numerous crimes including fraud, racketeering and breach of contract in addition to violating Louisiana?s unfair trade practices and consumer protection act.

I love it!!
