Baltimore City paying $420K to settle class-action suit over ticket fees at Royal Farms Arena

Over $420,000 will come out of profits the city reaps from Royal Farms Arena to settle a class-action lawsuit regarding fees applied to tickets sold at the venue.

John Bourgeois, the plaintiff in the case, filed a lawsuit in 2014 alleging that the city received illegal convenience and service fees on tickets sold through Ticketmaster and SMG, the company that manages the arena. The suit alleges the fees were collected between Aug. 1, 2011 and March 14, 2013.

The city owns Royal Farms Arena.

Bourgeois and his lawyer, Benjamin Carney from the Towson law firm Gordon, Wolf & Carney, were initially seeking a payout of $4.3 million for Bourgeois and other customers who were a part of the class-action suit. Carney could not be reached for comment.
