The Washington Commanders and the Washington DC Attorney General’s Office have settled a lawsuit over season ticket deposits from fans, officials announced Monday.

The settlement returns $200,000 to fans and pays $425,000 to the district to resolve complaints related to the deposits, Attorney General Brian L. Schwalb said. His predecessor, Karl A. Racine, filed the consumer protection lawsuit late last year before leaving office.

«Instead of being transparent and upfront in their ticketing practices, the Commanders illegally took advantage of their fan base, withholding security deposits instead of returning them,» Schwalb said in a statement. «Under this settlement agreement, our office will maintain close supervision over the Commanders to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to refund fans the refunds to which they are entitled.»

In addition, commanders must conduct a public records search to obtain contact information for affected fans and attempt to notify them, disclose the refund process on their website, and provide the Attorney General’s Office with regular reports documenting their progress.

“We have not accepted security deposits or seat licenses in over a decade and have been actively working to return any remaining deposits since 2014,” the commanders said in an email to The Associated Press.

«We are pleased to have reached an agreement on the matter with the DC Attorney General and will work with the office to meet our obligations to our fans.»
