Ticketmaster Proposes Settlement in Class Action Suit

News   Ticketmaster Proposes Settlement in Class Action Suit
 
Individuals who purchased tickets through Ticketmaster over the past decade received encouraging news this week when the corporation announced a credit for customers following a class action suit filed in California.

Plaintiffs filed the suit alleging deceptive and excessive order processing fees as well as over-priced charges for UPS shipping (in which Ticketmaster made a profit). Ticketmaster, which denies the allegations, is offering a proposed settlement of a $1.50 credit (for up to 17 tickets per individual) to customers who purchased tickets through the service from Oct. 21, 1999-Oct. 19, 2011. In addition, the subclass affected by the expedited UPS shipping charges will be eligible for a $5 UPS code credit for up to 17 transactions.

Customers will be able to apply the credit on future purchases through Ticketmaster. Those who used Ticketmaster over the ten-year period began receiving the e-mails in recent days.

On May 29, 2012, a Los Angeles court will decide whether to approve the proposed settlement. The website Ticketfeelitigation.com has been set up to keep those involved informed on the progress of the case.
