 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A judge has denied class-action status in a lawsuit filed by ticket-holders who were displaced when seats weren't properly installed for the 2011 Super Bowl in Texas.
The ruling issued Tuesday in federal court in Dallas denied class-action status to fans who were denied seats, those who were moved to other seats and people who claim they had obstructed views that weren't disclosed on the tickets.
About 1,250 temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington were deemed unsafe just hours before the game between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers. That forced about 850 ticket holders to move to new seats and 400 others to watch from standing-room locations.
Plaintiffs' attorney Michael Avenatti said he would proceed with individual lawsuits for ``hundreds of our clients.''
