Ticketmaster, TicketsNow Class Action Settlement
By Mike Holter
A federal court has approved a class action lawsuit settlement between Ticketmaster and customers who allege the company tricked them into buying more expensive tickets on a partnering website. Class Members can receive a partial rebate or a one-time cash payment of $10 from the class action settlement.
The Ticketmaster settlement resolves a class action lawsuit titled In re: Ticketmaster Sales Practices Litigation that accuses the company of re-directing people seeking to purchase event tickets at “face value” from www.ticketmaster.com to another website, www.ticketsnow.com, where tickets were sold at prices that exceeded face value. Plaintiffs further allege Ticketmaster engaged in this conduct despite the fact that event tickets continued to be available at face value on www.ticketmaster.com.
Defendants Ticketmaster and TicketsNow deny any wrongdoing, but have agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.
Class Members of the Ticketmaster class action settlement include all U.S. residents who purchased tickets on the TicketsNow resale website between April 1, 2008 and February 5, 2009, having arrived at that website directly by linking from a Ticketmaster webpage indicating that no exact matches were found after performing a ticket search on www.ticketmaster.com.
Class Members can elect to receive one of the following benefits from the settlement:
- Ticket Rebate. Class Members can receive a one-time rebate on a ticket purchase transaction completed on www.ticketsnow.com during the Claims Period in the amount of 18.5% of the total ticket purchase transaction, subject to a cap of $100 for that single ticket purchase transaction.
- $10 Cash. Class Members can receive a one-time cash payment of $10.
The only way to receive these benefits is to submit a valid Claim Form postmarked no later than March 19, 2014.
