Lawsuit filed against concert promoter Evenko over service fees

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against concert promoter Evenko over the service fees they charge you when you have your ticket delivered to you by email as a PDF. 

The main plaintiff is a woman who bought tickets to the Elton John concert coming up in October and who was charged $5.75 to have her tickets sent by email.

Lawyer Jeff Orenstein wants the surcharge scrapped, saying the law is on his client's side.

When there is a major disproportion between what it costs the merchant and what they charge the consumer is so great...a judge has the ability to either cancel that portion and return the money entirely, or to reduce it to the real cost," Orenstein said.

Orenstein points out none of Evenko's main competitors, including Ticketmaster and Admission, charge for electronic delivery of tickets.
