A federal appeals court on Monday rejected a lawsuit filed by a father and daughter from Western Pennsylvania and a Florida couple displeased with their temporary seats at Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, where the Steelers lost to the Green Bay Packers.

Richard Pollock of Beaver County and Cheryl Pollock of Moon, along with Paul and Cynthia Kutcher of Florida, argued they were defrauded by the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys in 2011 because they were relocated from a temporary-seating area, which was deemed unsafe, to a standing-room area with obstructed views of the field.

Paul Kutcher, a lawyer, represented the plaintiff group that filed its lawsuit in February 2012, about a year after the game. U.S. District Judge David S. Cercone dismissed the case in March 2013. The plaintiffs appealed to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.
