Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Richard Pacelle, professor of political science at the University of Tennessee, to find some answers.
Football fan Josh Finkelman paid $4,000 for a pair of tickets to this year’s Super Bowl. Now, he’s suing the National Football League.
Finkelman believes he spent too much money for the tickets and claims the NFL only makes 1 percent of Super Bowl seats available to the general public at face value, and violated New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Act.
The NFL contends it provides tickets to teams, which distribute the tickets to fans via lottery. Diane Sammons, one of Finkelman’s lawyers, joins us to discuss the case.
