If you'd like to go the Super Bowl but can't get a ticket, try suing the NFL. That's what one New Jersey football fan is doing.
Josh Finkelman of New Brunswick, New Jersey, claims the NFL is violating New Jersey's Consumer Fraud Act by making only one-percent of the 80,000 tickets available to the general public and has filed a class-action suit.
He argues that the rest of the tickets are distributed among each of the NFL's 32 teams, the TV networks and the sponsors. Many of these end up on for sale on the secondary market where fans have to pay well above face value.
Now as it turns out, Finkelman is going to the game. He says he bought two tickets for a total cost of $4,000, which proves his case. The lawsuit is seeking “damages and attorney’s fees … and any other damages deemed just and proper by the court.”
