Court to examine NFL's Super Bowl ticketing policies

September 26, 2018 - 2:27 pm

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The NFL's Super Bowl ticketing policies will be put under a microscope this week in a New Jersey courtroom.

The state's Supreme Court will hear arguments Thursday in the case of a man who says the league violated state consumer fraud laws for the 2014 game at MetLife Stadium.

Josh Finkelman says he had to pay more than double the $800 face value because the NFL made only 1 percent of the tickets available to the public. The NFL says in court filings that its policies didn't violate state law.

Finkelman is seeking to gain class-action status for the suit.

If the state Supreme Court rules in Finkelman's favor, the lawsuit can proceed in federal court. If he succeeds there, the league could be liable for millions in damages.
