ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The Los Angeles Rams and NFL are making another Hail Mary attempt to avoid a St. Louis jury.
The two organizations are petitioning to appeal a judge's decision in August that keeps their trial, centering on the team’s relocation, out of a St. Louis courtroom. In this latest appeal, they’re asking to shift the trial to a different county in the state based on an argument that they cannot get a fair trial in the city.
Previously, the judge shot that down which ironically cited the NFL’s own argument in the past that the Rams lacked community support to keep the Rams in town. The city of St. Louis is seeking millions of dollars in damages over the team's move. A judge recently ordered the league and several owners to turn over financial records to the move.
A hearing was slated Wednesday but several owners, including Jerry Jones, Robert Kraft and Clark Hunt, flied a new motion against sanctions in the case.
A trial is still scheduled for January.
