Geotpf: As mentioned in the farking article even, "previous administrations in the city of San Diego twice waived the city's rights to any claim against the NFL and the Chargers for relocation after the 2008 NFL season".

They have no chance of winning.  But let's waste taxpayers' money trying!


If they waived that right as a condition that the team would negotiate in good faith, but there is now evidence that the team was NEVER negotiating in good faith and had made the decision years prior regardless of what the city was going to offer -- does the city have recourse to say that the waiver was made under false/fraudulent pretenses and should be nullified?

IANAL, but this isn't as cut-and-dried as you're making it out to be.

/Now whether the plaintiff has standing to bring suit is another matter

It was obvious to the public they weren't negotiating in good faith.  The team never even went through the trouble of building a permanent practice facility.
