A New Orleans judge on Monday ordered NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and three referees to be questioned under oath over the “no-call” during January’s NFC Championship Game between the Rams and Saints.
Antonio LeMon, who filed a lawsuit over the game, says he and league attorneys will pick a date for depositions in New Orleans. The case alleges that the league committed fraud.
LeMon’s lawsuit seeks $75,000 in damages over the failure to throw a flag. The money would be donated to charity.
“I think the city of New Orleans and the Saints organization and the fan base, they deserve to know what happened in that NFC Championship game,” LeMon said, via WWLTV. “So we can get some level of truth, some information, so we can all heal a little better. As far as I’m concerned, we can’t move on until there’s been some reparation and some consequence for what happened.”
The missed call came at a crucial point in the game and the Saints went on to lose the game in overtime.
