BB&D, on behalf of the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority (also known as the RSA), prevailed before the state Court of Appeals with respect to a trial court’s ruling concerning arbitration in a matter between the RSA and the former St. Louis Rams. The RSA had previously filed suit against the Rams on an issue related to a training facility in St. Louis County. The trial court ruled that the matter should be resolved in arbitration and the RSA applied for a writ. In its ruling, the Court of Appeals stated that the matter should proceed before the circuit court given the language in the contract, as BB&D argued. Bob Blitz, Chris Bauman, Ellen Dunne, and Amy Oslica represented the Authority in this writ proceeding.
