Pasadena Residents File Lawsuit It Attempt To Block NFL Coming To Rose Bowl

PASADENA (AP/ — A group of neighborhood associations and residents in Pasadena has filed a lawsuit attempting to block city plans to offer the Rose Bowl as a temporary home to an NFL team that moves to Southern California while a permanent stadium is finished.

The lawsuit announced Friday, a day after it was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, challenges an environmental report approved by the Pasadena City Council that was the first step to bringing a team to the Rose Bowl, currently home to only college football.

The proposed Farmers Field stadium in downtown Los Angeles and a competing project in the City of Industry are looking to lure an NFL team to the area.

The team would need a temporary home for about two years during stadium construction.

Chargers, Jaguars, Rams and Bills are possible teams that could make the move to Los Angeles.
