NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The NFL and its Commissioner Rodger Goodell filed a motion in court on Wednesday to have a lawsuit filed against the league dismissed.

This filing is the latest in the fall out from the “no-call” during the final minutes of the NFC Championship game between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams.

The lawsuit, which was originally filed in Civil District Court on January 22 on behalf of Saints fans and season ticket holders, seeks damages for “monetary loss for ticket holders” and pushed for Goodell to reverse the outcome of the game.

In the NFL’s response, they argue that the court has no jurisdiction over the case and that they do not have the power to overturn the result of the game.

Goodell addressed the media Wednesday in Atlanta for his State of the League address. He fielded multiple question about the call/no-call during the press conference.
