A bizarre lawsuit has been filed in Manhattan Federal Court by Abdiell Suero, of Greenwich Village, who claims the teams are damaging fans by using the word New York despite playing home games in New Jersey.
The plaintiff claims that each franchise has “syphoned billions of dollars from interstate commerce” from New York State by playing home games in New Jersey.
The lawsuit requests the teams return to New York State in 2025, and award monetary damages in the amount of two-billion-dollars, plus punitive damages in the amount of four-billion-dollars.
“If the Giants and Jets want to call themselves New York teams, they need to come back to New York,” said Suero in court papers. “I’ve traveled to and from MetLife Stadium by mass transit and car service, and both ways are a nightmare.”
Court papers also asked for the two teams to be rebranded as the East Rutherford Giants and Jets for as long as they continue to play in New Jersey.
Neither the Giants nor the Jets have commented according to reports.
The lawsuit, obviously, stands no chance.
