Washington Commanders Accused Of ‘Cheating’ Season-Ticket Holders In New Lawsuit Filed by D.C. Attorney General

Another lawsuit has been filed against Daniel Snyder and the Washington Commanders.

On Thursday, District of Columbia Attorney General Karl A. Racine announced the filing of a second lawsuit, this time alleging the team did not refund those season-ticket holders whose contracts had expired, and the total amount adds up to nearly $200,000, according to the lawsuit.

A spokesperson for the Commanders pushed back on Racine’s allegations, according to CNBC:

“The Team has not accepted security deposits for over 20 years in the case of premium tickets and over a decade in the case of suites, and we began returning them to season ticket holders as early as 2004,” a Commanders spokesperson said in a statement Thursday. “In 2014, as part of a comprehensive review, Team management was instructed to send notices to over 1,400 customers with deposits and return all security deposits requested.”

The Commanders also claim that the team has not accepted premium ticket security deposits in over 20 years and they have not accepted suite security deposits in over a decade. They also said they began returning security deposits back in 2004, and then 10 years later sent notices to those will still had deposits that needed to be refunded.


This lawsuit comes one week after Racine filed another suit against the Commanders, owner Dan Snyder and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell regarding the parties deceiving D.C. residents about an investigation into toxic workplace culture within the team.

Earlier this month, team owners Dan and Tanya Snyder announced they had hired Bank of America to potentially sell the team.

Just sell the team, dude.
