LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal judge has halted proceedings in an Arkansas lawsuit against Ticketmaster until a lawsuit against the company in California is resolved.
U.S. District Judge James Moody on Friday granted Ticketmaster's motion for stay until a settlement in the Schlesinger vs. Ticketmaster case is approved and it has been determined whether the pact includes claims in a lawsuit by Arkadelphia resident Corey McMillan and other customers.
McMillan sued Ticketmaster after he said he was charged nearly $50 in fees to buy four tickets to a country music concert. He alleges Ticketmaster violated Arkansas' law on deceptive trade practices.
An attorney for McMillan didn't immediately return messages seeking comment Friday afternoon.
Ticketmaster spokeswoman Jacqueline Peterson said in an email the company had no comment because it is a pending legal matter.
