NFL Raiders Lose Contract Fraud Dispute

Aaa_11 The Oakland Raiders of the National Football League (2-8 and firmly mired in last place) suffered another setback yesterday, when a California appellate court threw out a $34.2 million judgment the team had gained against the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.  Raiders had claimed that they had been duped into signing a stadium lease based on the Coliseum's "negligent misrepresentation" that that season tickets had been sold out for the 1995 season.

The appellate panel decided, by a 2-1 vote, that the Raiders had waived their rights to sue on the claim when they subsequently entered into a new lease which contained significant concessions from the Coliseum.
