Earlier this year, a fan dropped a lawsuit asking for $6 billion and demanded that the Jets and Giants leave New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium to play in New York City by 2025. That fan has not only not dropped that lawsuit, but made some amends to it.
The original plaintiff, Abdiell Suero, now wants the teams to drop “New York” from their names in place of “New Jersey” because that’s where they actually play their home games every year, according to the New York Post.
Suero is now joined by another plaintiff, Maggie Wilkins and they are demanding that MetLife Stadium get rid of its cash-free concession policy, which the stadium adopted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“MetLife Stadium is located in the swamps of East Rutherford, NJ … , which has a population under 10,000, the 116th largest city in New Jersey. It’s not exactly an exciting and romantic destination[,] and the Giants, Jets and MetLife Stadium have absolutely no connection whatsoever with the city, county or state of New York. … Plaintiffs Abdiell Suero and Maggie Wilkins insist they were duped by false advertising and other fraudulent deceptive practices into believing the Giants and Jets still played in New York and shelled out some significant green to see Blue Blue and Gang Green play at MetLife Stadium.”
