Code of Conduct Involving Chiefs Fan to Take Center Stage in Court Friday

City Attorney Jan Goldsmith believes the NFL has a right to enforce its code of conduct, including ejecting fans for making obscene gestures and using foul language according to the Associated Press.

A criminal defense attorney disagrees, saying the code of conduct is unenforceable.

At a hearing set for Friday, attorney Mary Frances Prevost will ask San Diego Superior Court Judge Gale Kaneshiro to clear the arrest record of Jason Ensign. Last month, Kaneshiro threw out battery charges against Ensign, a Kansas City fan who was detained by private security guards during a Chiefs-Chargers game at Qualcomm Stadium in 2009.

While Goldsmith can’t appeal Kaneshiro’s earlier decision, he can appeal if the judge grants Ensign’s motion. Goldsmith said he is asking the judge to deny the motion to “send a message” about fan behavior.

The NFL has filed an affidavit supporting Goldsmith’s view.
