NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man has sued the National Football League, accusing it of pricing average football fans out of the Super Bowl.
Josh Finkelman, of New Brunswick, says the NFL only made 1 percent of all tickets available to the public for purchase at face value. He says that means most fans must buy their tickets on the secondary market, where they can command thousands of dollars.
Finkelman's lawsuit was filed Monday in federal court in Newark. It claims the NFL is violating the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.
Lawyer Bruce Nagel says the lawsuit is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.
The NFL says it is reviewing the suit. It notes that three-quarters of the game's tickets are given to teams, which sell them at face value to fans who win lotteries.
