Ronald McAllister v. the St. Louis Rams

Ronald McAllister v. the St. Louis Rams, U.S. District Court Case No. 4:16-CV-00172-SNLJ (Eastern District of Missouri) was a consumer class action that was filed in 2016.  Former season ticket holders of the St. Louis Rams alleged that they should be reimbursed for up to 30 percent of their personalized seating license because the Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles with 9 years remaining on a 30-year lease in St. Louis.  Econ One and Dr. Brian Kriegler were retained by the plaintiffs to propose a methodology for determining the amounts owed to the proposed class.

The Court granted the plaintiffs’ class certification motion in March 2018.  Subsequently, Dr. Kriegler constructed and implemented a sampling design for selecting contracts signed by season ticket holders.  In November 2018, the parties reached a $24 million settlement agreement to reimburse season ticket holders for their pro rata share of the 30-year commitment.  The Court officially approved the settlement agreement in 2019.
