D.C. attorney general sues Commanders, NFL alleging collusion

The Attorney General for the District of Columbia announced Thursday that his office is filing a civil consumer protection lawsuit against the Washington Commanders, owner Daniel Snyder, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The lawsuit, the result of a year-long investigation, alleges the Commanders and the league worked together to hide what they knew about workplace misconduct that was pervasive at the club. Snyder had already been suspended from the NFL.

“We stand up for all residents of DC,” said Atty. said General Karl Racine at a press conference. “We hold bad actors accountable when they cause harm. It means we seek justice. We use every legal tool we have to uncover the truth and right wrongs.”

In June 2021, the NFL fined Snyder’s organization $10 million for a toxic work culture, but did not publicly release independent investigator Beth Wilkinson’s findings.

“We were led to believe that the public would not be left out of the process; we were,” Racine said. “We were led to believe that real change was about to happen; we’re still waiting.”

Racine said that consumer protection law carries a maximum penalty of $5,000 for any lie or false statement made and that “this case will require testimony, testimonies and accountability from some of the most powerful men and organizations in the United States of America.”

Snyder and the Commanders are involved in multiple investigations on different fronts. Last week, the Snyders announced they had hired Bank of America Securities to review the sale of all or a portion of the franchise.
