Another group of Taylor Swift fans have filed a lawsuit against Ticketmaster over the recent ticket controversy regarding the “Eras Tour.”
According to Rolling Stone, a federal class action lawsuit has been filed against Ticketmaster and Live Nation following Swift’s “Eras Tour” ticketing debacle.
The lawsuit alleges that the ticketing company violated federal antitrust laws and unfair competition laws, and that they misled consumers in the sale of tickets for Swift’s tour.
“Ticketmaster intentionally and purposefully misled millions of fans into believing it would prevent bots and scalpers from participating in the presales,” that lawsuit, obtained by Rolling Stone, claims. “However, millions of fans were unable to purchase tickets during the TaylorSwiftTix Presale and the Capital One Presale, due in large part to unprecedented website traffic caused by Ticketmaster allowing 14 million unverified Ticketmaster users and a “staggering” number of bots to participate in the presales.”
The new lawsuit follows a similar lawsuit filed earlier this month in Los Angeles County District Court in California, where Ticketmaster’s parent company Live Nation is located.
The complaint alleges Ticketmaster violated the California Cartwright Act and the California Unfair Competition Law during its presale to “verified” fans on November 15 and 16.
