Eagan Avenatti, a Los Angeles-based law firm, filed a class-action lawsuit Tuesday against the Dallas Cowboys, owner Jerry Jones and the National Football League seeking damages for Super Bowl ticket holders assigned to unfinished temporary seating sections and fans whose view was obstructed.

The lawsuit seeks more than $5 million in damages.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Dallas, accuses the team of putting Cowboys season-ticket holders who bought tickets for Sunday's Super Bowl XLV between the Steelers and the Green Bay Packers in folding chairs with obstructed views of the game. It also represents the 400 ticket holders who could not use their seats because guard rails on stairways leading to the seats were not completed by game time.

The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, as well as fraud, deceit and concealment, and violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. It seeks to recover the economic loss of the ticket holders, which under the DTPA can be tripled, and punitive damages.
