Arkansas TM Lawsuit Snag

An Arkansas man’s lawsuit against Ticketmaster could be held up by a proposed settlement in a class-action suit against TM in California.

Cory McMillan sued Ticketmaster and its parent company, Live Nation, last year, claiming the company violated the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act by tacking on up to $50 in fees to four tickets McMillan bought for a Jason Aldean concert at Verizon Arena.

Ticketmaster’s attorneys argued that the California state court approved a nationwide class of customers that they claim covers McMillan and all Arkansas customers.

McMillan’s attorney, Todd Turner, disagreed, saying his client isn’t named as a
party in that case.
