APNewsNow: Lawsuit seeks compensation for Super Bowl loss

February 15, 2008

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- A lawsuit filed Friday by a former St. Louis Rams (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/stl/;_ylt=AojNw25Fp1LJpcGwsg9GxTkdsLYF) player and others seeks millions of dollars in damages from the alleged taping of Rams practices by the New England Patriots (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nwe/;_ylt=Ak4N.O1wffMuVuduP.uWw0sdsLYF) before the 2002 Super Bowl.

The Patriots won the game 20-17 in the Superdome.

The $100 million suit, filed on behalf of former Rams player Willie Gary in U.S. District Court in New Orleans, names the Patriots, team owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick.

This is kind of premature, isn't it? Don't have to have evidence supporting such an accusation before attempting to bring it to trial?

They have an accusation of the event... This should allow them to make a motion to see the evidence (and get it before Goodell can get it and destroy it saying "Nothing to see here").

Hopefully Matt Walsh will be subpoenaed or interviewed by lawyers, so maybe the truth will be revealed even if the lawsuit is dismissed...

The downward spiral continues for the patriots, this is like a dream come true.
