ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOX) — The Rams have reached a settlement in one of the lawsuits filed in St. Louis after their return to Los Angeles.

It's the suit filed by Personal Seat License holders seeking refunds on the nine years left on their PSLs when the team returned to Los Angeles. Word of the settlement came in a filing in U.S. District Court in St. Louis Monday.

PSL holders filed three suits shortly after the NFL approved the Rams return to L.A. in January 2016. They were eventually combined into one. The plaintiff's sought a refund for the nine years left on the licenses when the team left and. in some cases, the right to buy tickets in Los Angeles.

The filing offers no details, but according to the Los Angeles Times, both parties are in the process of gathering signatures for the settlement. They expect to file a motion for preliminary approval by December 17th.

The settlement means the Rams still face three suits in St. Louis, including one challenging the NFL's handling of the team's relocation.

The remaining St. Louis lawsuits include:

- Relocation: This one is the biggest of the three, which objects the way the NFL owners and Rams handled the relocation process of moving the Rams to Los Angeles.

- Practice facility: The lawsuit is over ownership of the Rams former practice facility in Earth City (Rams Park), which is currently being leased by Lou Fusz Athletic.

- Tickets and merch: It claims the Rams violated Missouri’s Merchandise Practices Act, misleading fans who bought tickets and team gear, believing the team would still be in St. Louis for years to come.
