The Oakland Raiders are reviving claims that the accounting firm Andersen, known until last year as Arthur Andersen, destroyed evidence that could prove it lied in 1995 when it assured sellouts at the stadium.
Congressional investigations into Andersen, and revelations that Andersen destroyed documents of bankrupt client Enron Corp., have "refocused us on this issue," Raider attorney Ken Hausman said in the Contra Costa Times on Saturday.
The Raiders did not immediately return calls to Associated Press.
The Coliseum hired Andersen in 1995 to track applications for 10-year personal seat licenses to Raider games. The program was the centerpiece of the Bay Area's attempts to bring the Raiders back to Oakland.
The Raiders sued the parties in 1998 for $1.1 billion, contending Raider owner Al Davis was assured of stadium sellouts by Andersen representatives and by Coliseum and city officials.
