DALLAS, TX (WTAQ) - A federal judge in Dallas has refused to throw out a lawsuit by fans who paid hundreds-of-dollars for seats they never got at the Packers' Super Bowl win last February. Over $1,200 seats at Cowboys Stadium were declared unsafe just hours before the game -- and about 500 fans had to either stand, or watch the game on TV in a stadium lounge. The NFL tried to get the suit dismissed, but Federal Judge Barbara Lynn said it should proceed. Lynn also said the league's make-up offer was not sufficient under the law. The offer included free tickets to a future Super Bowl, with travel expenses paid. Attorney Michael Avenatti said the league has tried numerous legal maneuvers to quote, "deny the fans what they're entitled to." The league has not commented on the judge's ruling.
