NFL criticizes Sunday Ticket class action ruling, demands reversal

Jul 8, 2024

The NFL may have lost the Sunday Ticket class action jury trial last month, but the league will play the long game to see it overturned.

Step one: Try to convince the presiding judge to throw out the loss.

In a motion filed last week for judgment as a matter of law or, in the alternative, a new trial, the league described the jury’s decision to award $4.7 billion in damages as “nonsensical” and “irrational” since—as the NFL sees it—jurors badly miscalculated the award by, among other things, getting “the relationship between actual prices paid and potential overcharges exactly backwards.”
