Last year, the city of St. Louis forced an unprecedented settlement against the Rams, Stan Kroenke, and the National Football League over relocation of the Rams. In this article, Allison Frisella covers how St. Louis' lawsuit can be used as a successful "roadmap" to sue the NFL, and how recent lawsuits filed by San Diego Taxpayers over relocation of the Chargers did just that. The article evaluates the claims made by St. Louis, how San Diego Taxpayers used similar claims in their complaints against the league, and if their successes will be the same as St. Louis.
