Cowboys, NFL Look To Quash Subpeonas In Super Bowl Ticket Suit
The Cowboys on Thursday sought to quash subpoenas for depositions next week against two of their execs – Exec VP/Brand Management Charlotte Jones Anderson and Senior Dir of Corporate Communications & Strategic Event Planning Brett Daniels – in the Super Bowl ticket lawsuit. The NFL on Thursday also submitted another motion in the North Texas federal court seeking to quash the subpoena for a deposition of Commissioner Roger Goodell. The arguments for all three are largely the same: that they possess no unique knowledge to the seat fiasco at the '11 Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium when temporary seats were not ready, and other executives know more about the situation. The team is no longer a party to the lawsuit, but the displaced ticketholders are seeking the team’s testimony as an interested third party.
The Cowboys said they have offered former Cowboys Stadium GM Jack Hill as better-suited than Anderson. In the NFL’s case, the league said in its motion that a better individual to be deposed is NFL Senior VP/Events Frank Supovitz. The league’s motion said the ticketholders have continually delayed Supovitz’ deposition.
