NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a class-action lawsuit that a New Orleans Saints' season-ticket holder filed against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over the league's bounty investigation.
In her ruling Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Helen "Ginger" Berrigan rejected the notion that Saints' ticket holders are the only ones who could have experienced "mental suffering" from the team's disappointing season. Berrigan said "that agony has been much more widely felt by the Who Dat Nation."
Saints ticket holder David James Mancina sued the NFL and Goodell in October, seeking more than $5 million in damages. The suit claimed the NFL's sanctions against the team over its alleged system of offering cash bonuses to Saints players for big hits punished innocent ticket holders more than anyone else.
