Judge: Eagles owe city $8 million

The Philadelphia Eagles owe the city $8 million in luxury box revenue from since-demolished Veterans Stadium. That was a city judge's ruling Monday in the long-running dispute between the city and its football team.

The Eagles say they won't appeal the ruling.

In August 2005, Judge Albert Sheppard Jr. ruled the Eagles owed the city for luxury box revenues dating back to the 1990s but did not set an amount until Monday.

Sheppard is expected to rule next week in a separate dispute that could determine the total amount the Eagles must pay.

In that case, the judge will decide how much the city owes the team for a preseason game that had to be canceled because of problems with the turf.
