"Football the Right Way," a California citizens' group, has filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court against the NFL and the city of Carson, California. The lawsuit protests the manner in which Carson has handled a 157-acre site under consideration by the National Football League for a proposed football stadium. The suit seeks public participation in the project and protection for the community from financial losses. The suit also demands the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report at the site, which sits atop a former landfill containing approximately 1.2 million gallons of potentially toxic waste.
