The Los Angeles Rams were ordered to pay former NFL running back Reggie Bush $12.45 million in damages on Tuesday for a knee injury he suffered in St. Louis in 2015. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:   

"I'm very happy with the verdict," Bush told the Post-Dispatch. "The people spoke and decided very fairly."

Attorneys for the Rams said they plan to file a motion for a new trial. The team declined comment on the verdict.

Bush filed suit in 2016, alleging that the Rams and the public stadium authorities allowed a "a dangerous condition to exist at the Dome." Bush's suit called the area where he fell "a concrete ring of death."

The St. Louis jury ordered the Rams to pay Bush $4.95 million in compensatory damages and $7.5 million in punitive damages.  

 Bush's original suit was against the St. Louis Rams, St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission. But on Friday, Associate Circuit Judge Calea Stovall-Reid dismissed the convention authority and sports complex, leaving the Rams as the sole defendant.
