A jury has sided with the plaintiffs suing the NFL and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones over a seating fiasco at the 2011 Super Bowl in Arlington.

The jury awarded between $5,770 to $22,000 to the plaintiffs, saying the NFL breached its contract with them. However, the jury did not rule in favor of two of the plaintiffs, saying the NFL did not commit fraud in their cases. They will not be awarded money.

After the verdict Thursday, the plaintiffs' attorney asked Judge Barbara Lynn to issue a subpoena for the stadium's seating contractor, meaning the verdict may not be final. Story at WFAA.com.
