    The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission said Tuesday it has paid $2 million to the St. Louis Rams to cover the team's legal fees for the dispute over upgrades to the Edward Jones Dome that resulted in arbitration.

    CVC spokeswoman Donna Andrews said payment was made May 20 and Rams spokesman Artis Twyman confirmed the team was paid.

    The CVC operates the dome that the Rams have played in since 1995, the year they moved to St. Louis from Anaheim, Calif., the dome was built with taxpayer funds to lure an NFL team.

    The 30-year lease agreement allows the Rams to leave after the 2014 season if the dome is not deemed to be among the top quarter of the NFL's 31 stadiums. The two sides were far apart on how to get to that top-tier level, prompting arbitration.
