TEXAS (CelebrityAccess) A Texas attorney has filed suit against Ticketmaster after a Jan. 9 online purchase apparently cost him $2,300 for a Hamilton performance he did not want to attend.
Josh Davis said he said he was purchasing tickets for the Broadway play for his daughter’s birthday but hitting the back button caused his selected date to change from one in March to Jan. 17, according to his complaint. Ticketmaster refused to refund the purchase, according to the lawsuit, which was filed Jan. 9.
Ticketmaster’s purchase system amounts to fraud in the inducement and a breach of contract, Davis says, according to Bloomberg. Davis also accuses Ticketmaster of violating the Sherman Antitrust Act by using its market dominance to “abuse consumers.”
Ticketmaster didn’t immediately respond to Bloomberg Law for comment.
