DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have been dropped from a lawsuit over lack of seating for some ticketholders at the 2011 Super Bowl in Texas.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn on Thursday removed the team as a defendant. Part of the litigation can continue against the NFL.

The Dallas Morning News reports the judge ruled the tickets were a contract between the buyers and the NFL. The Packers beat the Steelers 31-25 in the game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

A Cowboys spokesman declined comment. An NFL statement notes the judge dismissed most of the lawsuit's claims.

The plaintiffs can continue suing the NFL for breach of contract. People with obstructed-view seats can continue their fraud claims.

Plaintiffs' attorney Michael Avenatti says evidence will be presented of NFL fraud against fans.
