CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Businessman Ken Lanci sued the NFL, the Cleveland Browns and the league's 31 other teams on Thursday, aiming to save the upcoming football season.

Lanci says in the suit that the lockout violates his private seat license contract with the Browns and jeopardizes his right to watch a full season of home games.
He filed the suit in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, asking the court to prohibit the lockout that threatens to cancel the 2011-12 NFL season ( lancisuit.pdf ).

I don't understand how a judge could rule on this now. Wouldn't you have to wait until September when games are actually missed? (If they are)

I've never seen the language in any PSL agreement but I'd be surprised if it didn't include a force majeure clause that specifically referenced labor stopages.

yep, but right now there is officially a lockout and there will be no season this year. i think thats why he can bring the lawsuit now, a judge wont rule on something like this i would imagine UNTIL games are lost, but as of right now there is officially no 2011 season, and thats what he paid for.

Seat licenses at Cowboys stadium are around 100K.

You get enough of those guys together and this is a pretty big suit.
