Arbitrators: CVC Must Pay Rams’ Legal Fees

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission will pay $2 million in legal fees incurred by the St. Louis Rams as the two sides have squared off over renovations for the Edward Jones Dome.

The ruling by arbitrators was released Tuesday. The CVC president and the Rams declined comment.

The team’s lease agreement for the dome requires that it be among the top quarter of all 31 NFL stadiums. The team and the CVC have not been able to come to a consensus on how to get it there. The Rams last year were seeking improvements that the CVC estimated would cost at least $700 million. The CVC proposal would have cost less than $200 million. Arbitrators over the winter ruled in favor of the Rams.
