DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was on the stand a little more than two hours with some occasionally rough-and-tumble testimony answering questions mostly from the plaintiff’s attorney.
Jones testified Tuesday in a federal civil trial four years in the making, brought by fans who bought tickets to Super Bowl XLV but found out the seats didn’t exist or had obstructed views.
“The same question asked tricky or five different ways probably was irritating a little bit,” said Jones.
Over the course of Jones testimony, there were some light moments. For example, when Avenatti approached Jones to show him some documents Jones told the attorney, “You’re a sweetheart.” The judge cracked she’d overlook the perjury rule in that statement.
Closing arguments are set for Wednesday, with the jury expected to have the case before noon.
