STARS FACE SUIT FROM ANGRY SEASON-TICKET HOLDERS
Published October 28, 1994
Seven Dallas fans have filed a lawsuit againt the Stars seeking a full refund for their season tickets. The suit seeks "refunds, interest and court cost for failing to provide the sports entertainment contracted for." Two days ago the team announced its ticket-refund policy which allows full refunds to be made only on games cancelled by the NHL. Mark Brinkman, originator of the suit: "Them announcing the refund policy wasn't the reason we filed, but it's basically a joke. They've basically told us, 'We'll hold on to your money and pay you 5% interest for the right to do that.' I'd just as soon have my money back now." Each plantiff is seeking the price of a season ticket ($1,190.75 or more), minus a non-refundable $250 deposit, and each asks for $264 in parking costs" (Mike Heika, FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM, 10/27). The plantiffs "also want their case to be ruled a class action so other ticket holders who want refunds can get them" (Gayle Reaves, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/27).
