Hey, here’s something that everyone listening to me knows—the Super Bowl is this Sunday.
And if you’re asking who in America didn’t know that, well, it would be the small number of people living in a little place called denial—more specifically New Orleans—who were holding out hope a federal judge would order a replay of the Rams-Saints game because of a blown call late in the game.
Instead, the federal judge simply rejected the quest by two New Orleans Saints ticket holders to force a full or partial do-over of this year's NFC Championship Game.
"None of the actions Plaintiffs might seek to compel Commissioner Goodell to do are the kinds of actions a writ of mandamus may address," the judge wrote said in a 17-page ruling in which she detailed the extraordinary circumstances in which Louisiana law allows a writ of mandamus to be issued.
In the same ruling, the judge also rejected arguments that the case should be in state court in New Orleans, where it was originally filed.And at least two lawsuits—one is a class-action lawsuit on behalf of ticket holders, still pending in state court as of Thursday.And I think it’s a safe bet they go the same way as this fantasy lawsuit
