LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A California concert-goer is seeking a refund for tickets she purchased for a postponed tour.
Tiana Adams filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on April 20 in the Riverside Superior Court against Live Nation Entertainment Inc., Vivid Seats LTD and Does 1 through 25 alleging violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased tickets to Janet Jackson's Unbreakable World Tour in 2015 for a January 2016 show. The suit states the tour was postponed until 2017 with no specific dates scheduled. She alleges that she has contacted the defendants for a refund but was told that because the tour was postponed and not canceled, she cannot get a refund.
The plaintiff holds Live Nation Entertainment Inc., Vivid Seats LTD and Does 1 through 25 responsible because the defendants allegedly refused to provide a refund to the plaintiff since they classify the postponed event as a "rescheduled" event.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Lee A. Sherman and Kyle R. Dinicola of Callahan, Thompson, Sherman & Caudill LLP in Irvine, California.
The case was removed to U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on July 25 by the defendant.
