DC Attorney General Karl Racine announced a lawsuit against embattled Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder, the team and the NFL on Thursday, alleging they colluded to deceive DC residents about an NFL investigation into toxic workplace culture at the team and allegations of sexual assault.
The lawsuit cites the District of Columbia’s Consumer Protection Procedures Act, which gives the attorney general broad authority to hold individuals or a company accountable for misleading DC customers.
Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that Snyder, along with team officials, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell, worked to prevent DC residents from learning the truth about the ongoing investigation into the toxic work environment and sexual harassment within the Commanders organization.
