Rams must compensate season ticket holders in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - A major ruling comes down from a federal judge when it comes to Rams fans in St. Louis who bought Personal Seat Licenses with their season tickets.

The ruling, from Judge Steven Limbaught, says that some Rams fans in St. Louis are entitled to buy season tickets for the team`s games in Los Angeles while others are entitled to refunds on their deposits bought for games here. Multiple lawsuits were filed regarding the situation with PSL holders in St. Louis when the Rams moved to Los Angeles.

Some 46,000 fans had the PSLs when the Rams moved. PSLs grant the right for people to buy season tickets. The Rams argued the PSL contracts were terminated when they moved to Los Angeles.

St. Louis fans bought PSLs under two different contracts. One through the Rams directly and the other through the Rams ticketing agent Fans Inc.

Judge Limbaugh ruled that the language in the contracts is different and therefore fans are entitled to different things.

Fans who bought their PSLs through the Rams will be given the opportunity to buy season tickets for the games in la while people who bought through Fans Inc. will be given back some amount for their deposits. The judge will make a ruling on how much of a deposit refund fans will get later.

The ruling is significant because fans who still are entitled to theirs PSLs could now sell them likely for a much higher price because they are more valuable in Los Angeles.
