The NFL responded to a lawsuit filed by the city of St. Louis, stating there is “no legitimate basis” for the city’s case regarding the Rams‘ relocation to Los Angeles, according to a statement obtained by The Associated Press.

The city, along with the County of St. Louis filed a lawsuit against the NFL and its 32 teams, alleging the league and its franchises illegally approved the Rams’ relocation bid to Los Angeles.

In January 2016, the NFL voted 30-2 in favor of relocating the Rams from St. Louis to Los Angeles, much to the chagrin of St. Louis civic officials. The Rams stumbled to a 4-12 mark in their return to Los Angeles, previously operating as the Los Angeles Rams from 1946-1994, before moving to St. Louis prior to the 1995 season.
