Fan suing NFL over cost of Super Bowl tickets
The NFL is defending itself over ticket prices following a lawsuit filed by a football fan who says Super Bowl tickets are too expensive for the average fan.
Josh Finkelman is suing the league for not providing enough Super Bowl tickets to fans at face value. The New Jersey man claims the NFL only released 1 percent of the tickets to fans -- far short of the 5 percent required by New Jersey state law protecting against consumer fraud.
Finkelman says the practice drove up the cost of his tickets to $4,000 from a reseller.
The NFL says it is in compliance with the law.
