Ticketmaster customers to get small fee credits
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Customers who purchased tickets through Ticketmaster are getting notices that tell them they'll soon receive credits for fees they were charged over the past decade.
Emails are going to customers who are entitled to the credits as part of a class-action lawsuit filed in 2003 in Los Angeles. A pair of men sued over fees they were charged for purchasing tickets to Wilco and Bruce Springsteen concerts.
A judge in October approved a preliminary settlement that will give customers a $1.50 credit for up to 17 tickets they purchased between specific dates in October 1999 and 2011. It will also give an additional credit for those who received tickets via UPS. The settlement will be finalized in May.
Ticketmaster is owned by Live Nation Inc.
