BC-US—Super Bowl-Seat Problems-Pa,128


Fed judge tosses 2011 Super Bowl tickets lawsuit


Eds: APNewsNow.


PITTSBURGH (AP) — A federal judge in Pittsburgh has dismissed one lawsuit from people who bought tickets to the February 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas, but had to watch it on TV because their seats weren’t properly installed in time for the game.


U.S. District Judge David Cercone dismissed the fraud claim saying the four buyers can’t prove that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys intended to defraud anyone. The Cowboys’ new stadium was hosting the game between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers.


The judge says the case is a contract dispute but the ticket-holders can’t pursue it in federal court because the combined ticket, travel and hotel costs don’t exceed $75,000.


A separate trial for hundreds of other ticket holders is scheduled in Dallas in October.
