County wants more financial records from Bengals, NFL

Associated Press

CINCINNATI - Hamilton County has resumed its antitrust lawsuit against the National Football League and the Bengals, demanding additional financial records now that settlement talks have failed.
County attorneys filed a brief in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati on Monday, requesting documents related to the NFL's negotiations with its players' union for a new collective bargaining agreement.
The records could reveal team profits from new stadiums, as well as from parking, concessions and other revenue sources, the attorneys say.
The team and the league previously turned over some financial records to the county, but most have not been made public.
The county alleges that taxpayers were misled by claims that the Bengals needed a new stadium to be profitable and remain in Cincinnati. Taxpayers approved a one-half cent surtax to finance the $450 million Paul Brown Stadium.
The lawsuit seeks tens of millions of dollars in damages.
The Bengals didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday and a message seeking comment was left with the league. Attorneys for the Bengals have said the club negotiated in good faith and never misled the county.
The Bengals have asked U.S. District Judge S. Arthur Spiegel to throw out the lawsuit, saying it was not filed within the four-year statute of limitations from the time the lease agreement was signed in 1997.
