DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM)
– It’s the NFL versus their fans and it’s playing out in Federal Courthouse in Dallas.

Fans are suing because of seating problems at the Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.

Jury selection begins Monday in the Super Bowl XLV lawsuit.

The suit claims that the seats were sold to several fans for 2011’s Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium that either did not exist or were located behind posts, railings or concrete obstructions.

More than a thousand temporary seats were declared unsafe just hours before the big game.

1,250 temporary seats were deemed unsafe just hours before the game.

Hundreds of ticket holders were forced to move to new seats while others had to watch from standing-room locations.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones are expected to testify during the trial.

Up first will be Goodell and if he’s in the Dallas courtroom, then his video deposition will be used.

Once a jury is picked opening arguments will begin. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
