Judge Rules In Favor Of Lexecon Client, Chicago Cubs, In Class Action Suit
November 24, 2003
The Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field Premium Ticket Services, a ticket brokerage owned by the Cubs' parent Tribune Co., were sued by a class of purchasers of tickets from Wrigley Field Premium Ticket Services, alleging violations of the Illinois Ticket Scalping Act, the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, and the Illinois Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Judge Sophia H. Hall of the Circuit Court of Cook County ruled in favor of the defendants on all claims. Bradley Reiff authored an expert report and was deposed on behalf of the Cubs and Wrigley Field Premium Ticket Services. At trial, the judge asked the plaintiffs to stipulate to Dr. Reiff's opinion that the entry of a ticket broker jointly owned with the Cubs would have a depressing effect on aftermarket ticket prices.
