Fan’s drive to keep Chargers in town rejected by city
SAN DIEGO — Dan Jauregui, known as “Bolt Man,” says the city should consider hiring a New York-based law firm to sue the Chargers and the NFL.
He presented a demand letter Thursday to City Attorney Jan Goldsmith asking he look into hiring a group of lawyers who specialize in anti-trust law because the team and the NFL are not negotiating in good faith and are violating anti-trust laws.
But the idea has been rejected by Goldsmith because the team has an agreement in place, which states the city cannot sue the Chargers or a third party.
“All we’re asking is that Jon Goldsmith reach out to this law firm that has a reputation for winning cases against NFL,” said Jauregui.
The City Attorney’s Office maintains this is not an option.
