New Orleans Attorney Files Lawsuit After Saints' Loss in NFC Championship

By: Emilia DiFabrizio

A New Orleans attorney has filed a lawsuit with the Civil District Court of New Orleans Parish over the controversial Saints’ loss in the NFC Championship against the LA Rams.

Frank D’Amico Jr. is asking courts to take action over the outcome, citing NFL Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1, which states, “The commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club actions, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game.”

After the Saints lost in overtime 26-23, D’Amico says the commissioner, Roger Goodell, has the power to reverse the clock to the time of the fateful penalty that was not called and allow the teams to duke it out.
