TEXAS HOCKEY FANS FIRE LAWSUIT AT STARS
Published November 29, 1994
Mark Brinkman, a Stars season-ticket holder who filed a class-action lawsuit against the team, will "pursue a full refund and damages against the Stars for season-tickets he paid for in June." Brinkman said he will continue with the suit even if the season is cancelled and the team offers full refunds. Brinkman: "I'd just like to take this out to make a point and maybe set a precedent for all sports leagues. This just isn't the way to operate a business. The fans have no rights." The Stars have offered three different options on a refund policy, although they join 22 NHL teams in not offering cash refunds for the entire season. Four teams do offer full refunds for season-tickets, although the fans give up the right to retain priority seating. This policy has kept requests for full refunds low. Stars President Jim Lites said full refunds are "just not possible" at this time (Mike Heika, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/28).
