>> reporter: the group we stand with oakland just wrapped up a press conference and then went inside to plead its case before the county board of supervisors. they are re-energized because of a group suing the rams for moving to las vegas. they ask the case to be tossed out. the judge refused to toss it out. that case is likely headed to trial, giving the cause here in oakland new life. >> our patience and our tenacity has paid off. we're very excited about the developments in st. louis. that has definitely prompted us and encouraged us. >> reporter: the group trying to save the raiders is back at it. these advocates say if a judge in missouri thinks there's a case against the rams and the nfl, maybe there's a case here, too. and they say law firms seem to agree. >> and i'm extremely encouraged by the fact that a number of prominent law firms would like to represent us.
>> reporter: that's county supervisor nate miley who says he'll lead the fight at the board level. they ask for support at the city and state level and got it from an assemblyman and a city council member. >> with the $83 million bond left in the coliseum, that's something we don't want to be left holding. if it's possible to keep the raiders or keep the raiders franchise or get economic relief, i think it's prudent for us to explore those options. >> i wholeheartedly support this effort to pursue the national football league, which has also violated its own relocation guidelines and enriched itself at the expense of the community it left behind. >> reporter: they do need a municipality on board. that brings us here to the county board of supervisors. it's in closed session right now discussing whether to move forward with this case. i did reach out to the oakland
raiders, a couple phone calls and e-mails. still waiting to hear back. reporting live in oakland, amy hollyfield, abc7 news. >> thank you. happening today, the san francisco board of supervisors is expected to vote on whether to name an interim mayor who would serve until the june election to fill the late ed lee's spot. the board would need to vote in order to open up the discussion and agree on a process to consider nominees. the public would have an opportunity to weigh in. now, the examiner reports as of monday, yesterday, no one had votes to be named interim mayor. board of supervisors lee became acting mayor after mayor lee died of a heart attack, but she's now a candidate in the june election and opponents believe it may give her an advantage if she continues to serve as acting mayor. santa cruz boaters are breathing a sigh of relief when a massive earthquake off the coast of lass temporarily triggered a tsunami alert along the coast.
