Former St. Louis Rams Personal Seat License holders will receive funds from the recently resolved lawsuits in January.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, lawyers involved in a class action lawsuit said that more than 11,000 refunds, totaling approximately $14 million, will be awarded on January 2. These lawsuits, which were announced last year, were filed against the St. Louis Rams for their decision to relocate to Los Angeles. Those that made deposits and payments toward PSLs at Dome at America’s Center demanded refunds for payments made for future games.
Initially, the team tried to bypass refunds by stating that PSL holders needed to be reimbursed from the stage agency FANS, which was set up by the venue owner, Regional Convention and Visitors Commission. However, the ownership of the Rams agreed to settle the lawsuits, which covered 46,000 PSLs that were supposed to run through 2024. Between 65 and 70 percent of PSL holders filed a claim, totaling 11,568. Based on the PSL, the fans will receive refunds between $75 and $1,350, with claims capped at $24 million.
A second lawsuit, concerning fans who bought tickets and merchandise from 2010 to 2016, was also settled, which promised a 25 percent refund. An additional suit, filed against the NFL and teams by the city, the country, and the Regional Convention and Sports Complex authority, is still pending.
