The St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority as well as St. Louis city and county are suing the NFL and its 32 owners for damages and restitution that the relocation caused, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

According to the lawsuit filed Wednesday in St. Louis Circuit Court, the Cowboys owner intentionally interfered with and damaged the city's relations with the Rams by "by encouraging, promoting, and conspiring with Mr. Kroenke to develop a plan to relocate the Rams to Los Angeles and convincing the other member-teams to approve the relocation."

The lawsuit alleges that Jones pushed the move on the other owners and that he told Kroenke to plan on building an Inglewood, Calif.,stadium before the move was approved.

Jones reportedly promoted the Los Angeles location based on how much money the league could receive after the NFL initially rejected the move.

By a 30-2 vote, the league approved of the Rams' move in January 2016.
