Romo's fantasy company fighting with NFL in court again

DALLAS (AP) - A fantasy football company partly owned by Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is fighting the NFL in court again, this time claiming the league is interfering with a second attempt to hold a fan-centric convention by asking sponsors not to participate.

A Dallas judge on Wednesday granted Romo's company, Fan Expo LLC, a temporary injunction that bars the NFL from contacting sponsors after video game company EA Sports withdrew this week from the event planned for the Los Angeles area in July.

The inaugural event was supposed to be last summer in Las Vegas, but was called off after organizers accused the NFL of threatening players with fines or suspensions if they participated because of the venue's ties to gambling.

In asking for a temporary injunction, Fan Expo lawyers claim the NFL is trying to get the event canceled again.
