    Sounds like they aren't suing because they purchased bad tickets, they are suing for their treatment

    Who knows what the two sides discussed in trying to come to an agreement, but it's too bad the team wouldn't offer them a mini season ticket package or something along those lines to settle it. Would be good publicity for the team, and would be something of real value for the two men involved. They are unlikely to get anything out of a lawsuit, although I guess we should never underestimate the power of a liberal judge

    Was it said what the team offered, or didn't offer? They're seeking 100,000-1 million, far more than a mini season package is worth. Its also strange that the lawyer couldn't explain in the above article whether they bought the tickets from a friend or a secondary party, and he wasn't sure how much they paid. You'd think these would be disclosable info if they were truly "duped".

    I'm guessing they're holding out for a bigger payday... but likely being poorly advised to let this go to trial, as if the Astros (and all teams) have a policy that this is how they handle these incidences, there really isn't much of a case.

    yea I have no idea what they were offered was just throwing that out there. And no doubt what they are seeking is way more than a mini season plan, I was just thinking if they offered something of value like that maybe they would have accepted rather than go through a trial they very likely won’t win. Who really knows though

    As for the lawyer not saying specifics, unless they think putting that out in public would somehow help their case, they would never say it to the media

    Agreed.

    They're likely not putting it out there because it doesn't help their case... but being extra vague ("could have been a friend, or a 2nd party") is suspect in and of itself.
