Charney Lawyers PC are Canadian leaders in class action litigation. We are prosecuting numerous class actions across Canada and our lawyers have been counsel in major consumer protection cases.
The class action alleges that Ticketmaster has engaged in business practices which encourage scalpers to flourish, forcing consumers from the lower-priced primary ticket market to the higher-priced resale ticket market, where Ticketmaster imposes additional fees on top of the fees levied in the primary ticket market. This situation may be ideally suited to be litigated as a class proceeding because many Canadians were affected in the same way. A class proceeding would allow all Canadian users to access justice without each hiring their own lawyers. All Canadian users would be represented by a small team of lawyers who would be paid out of the settlement or court awards. Any users who do not wish to be part of the class proceeding will be able simply to opt out.
